    Fantastic news, i am also a believer in fate and they dealt you a fabulous hand honey. This will also make you B/F a lot happier too with hopefully a bit of redundancy in his pocket too.

    Wish him luck for his new job and first day xx

    I'm not the boss of the people as such; people are leveraged to me as and when I need them. So responsibility for the project being delivered is mine, but the work is farmed out to specialists which I manage for the time they are assigned to me.

    Well, spend it on gadgets and not takeaways ;) I was in a similar position a few years ago; I got laid off from a job after nine years, luckily walked straight into this one (negotiated a month off, for a break lol) which paid me more than the old one.

    The mileage *is* a bonus, I bought a car when I took this job on and averaged out the mileage allowance has paid for all the fuel used, my insurance, tax, tyres, and *the car itself*. I've basically got a free car, apart from servicing (which I do myself), MOT's and I got the garage to fix the brakes one time, because I sheared a nut off and couldn't be bothered to sort it out...

    Live on Teesside, but the job is mainly over West. I lived over there separate from my family for a while, and piled loads of pounds on. Nothing to do of an evening but eat takeaways and watch TV/play computer games...
