However - as one door closes another one opens and opportunities present themselves all the time - but to see them you have to have an open mind and be in a place where you can recognise them as opportunities - and as many people know - what seems at the time to be a disaster often turns out to be a blessing in disguise.
So tomorrow I'm meeting an ex-colleague for coffee before we go into the office to empty our desks - then off to the Job Centre to sign on (I'm getting the £40 per week and having my NI stamp paid) with the hordes of 'the great unwashed'!!
It's along time since I've been jobless and unemployed - I'm quite looking forward to the time off to have a proper think!!!
