Half empty? Just LOOKS that way right now! Life can surprise you (both ways!!)

I was a qualified librarian....so what have I done, what am I known for in Bristol? Running a favourite Veggie cafe! For 27 years!

Find what you REALLY like, and go for it! One life. Fill it!

Good luck.

I know this may not be what you are looking for but the Oil & Gas industry is booming & they are really in need of qualified, experienced engineers. Some companies are happy to look at engineers from other industries. So try a search on http://www.oilandgasjobsearch.com. You can search under your relevant discipline. Chances are you may have to travel but the money can be xcellent :D . If you have any questions drop me a pm.

Good Luck

Now we are just a warehouse for China.......

What happened to apprenticeships for young people.......down the same road.

I'm speechless.... The echo's of your extended family and your excitement are still ringing in my ears, then this.

Try to calm down and concentrate on the baby to be......... This is your duty now! Destiny will find another path alongside, and open doors you cannot see now because negative reasoning overwhelms vision... You will be just fine!

It all depends on how far you're willing to travel. My dad tends to get head-hunted, working on anything from oil refineries and sewage pumping stations to Terminal 5 at Heathrow! He's currently working in the Middle East, I think it's 2 months on, 1 month off. Not what you'd want with a baby due, but if you're a good engineer there are jobs out there. Chin up, and good luck.

Thanks for the kind words guys. I'm still angry about it, I won't go into detail but it is clear that this is an attempt by my boss to get rid of all those who disagree with him regularly.

I already have two job interviews lined up this week, so thats all good, but it is safe to say the timing of this isn't perfect at the moment.

Thanks for the web links as well. I'll look into it.

The hardest thing is having to sit here for the next two weeks fuming about it. ah well. C'est la vie

Some good news!

I accepted a job yesterday, closer to home but less money for the first 6 months until a review. An old company but they have had a new product thats very successful and they do a lot of work with China, which will mean some 10 day visits out there.

Mrs P is well happy, she had a little cry :(

I just hope she never meets my boss in the street, he's liable to get an earful and a smack from her.

Apologies to the mods for swearing too ;)
