    Good - I think I have been head hunted for my bespoke carpentry skills.

    Bad - The work is on the south coast!

    What has been good/bad in your life recently?
  2. Good - I play guitar in a band and we're just beginning to get better gigs (festivals, radio appearances, etc.)
    Bad - we have to rehearse most weekends, which buggers up my cycling (and my relationship with Ms RT, sometimes ...)

    i've seen your pics and it's special work

    if you miss the opportunity you'll always wonder, what if?

    good luck

    Thanks, I am thinking about it very seriously. The work is initially constructional carpentry for a new build followed by high quality bespoke internal joinery and then the chance for some very high quality bespoke work for clients on the company's books.
    The problem is that I will be 250+ miles from my workshop and I will need to find somewhere local to live as the first job is July to December.

    Good: Work is going well and I'm enjoying it

    Bad: A colleague doing the same job is being paid just under 9K more than me (due to a merger and her being from the 'other' place) and no-one seems capable/bothered to address the problem as it would ruffle feathers etc.

    Good luck with what you decide to do NightTrain, it'd be great for you to be paid for your skills and talent.

    The weathers better (on the whole) darn sarf = good cycling :smile:

    I am nervous of the scale of the work load (I am not as used to the long hours having been teaching for a year) and I am concerned about the cost of moving south or finding accomodation. I will need a very long think.

    Good - Just been offered an audition for my local amateur dramatics group.

    Bad - haven't acted on stage in over 25 years.
