In all honesty the salary wasn't the only motivator here. Yes it's nice to be offered more but I will be leaving a secure job where I'm highly thought of by all so it was always going to be a big decision. My boss is gutted that I'll be going but agrees that I'd be silly not to take it. It is also a job I have done elsewhere in the past so I don't see too many issues there.
Probably my biggest decision left to make is what to do with my own car. I may need to sell it as I don't really have room to store it on the drive.
Thanks for all the good wishes.
John

On Friday I was offered a new job in Swindon and after having thought about it over the weekend I have decided to accept it. They have offered me 6500 more than I am on at the moment plus a car. It didn't really take too much thinking about if I'm honest  :)

Well done to you Trainfish!  Very good news.  :)

I have now connected my television to the fibre optic broadband  :claphappy:

The television will now update itself and I can watch You Tube videos whilst sitting comfortably when there are no television programmes I wish to watch  :tv:

cheers John.

Well done and good luck with the job!  :thumbsup:
As to the car, think of it as a train fund on wheels.  ;)

Having one of my 6 allocated happy days this year :laugh3:
Also found my missing roll of wire. :claphappy:
Can now finish wiring under my board, plus all the windows are open and there is a nice breeze to keep me cool.

So most of the time you're grumpy, and 6 days a year you're happy ...

:hmmm:

How many days are allocated to being the other five dwarves?? :D

Finally think my doctor may be getting closer to sorting my health problems.  :thumbsup:
Got another blood test and waiting for the date for my CT Scan.
More antibiotic based pills prescribed. :unimpressed:
Hopefullly the scan will confirm the problems.

My chest X-Rays were fine, but have been advised to take it easy in the current warm weather.
