  1. Ok most of you now my story from the past few months
    quick rehash :

    Nov 05 mum passed away , then had to leave my last job as they could'nt give me the extended time off i needed to sort out all the legal crap etc etc

    Jan 06 spent two months up in Syd doing a full reno to mums house so we could put it on the market.

    Late March , cruise fully booked and paid for ( 1st real holiday in 10 years )

    April, back from cruise and start looking for employment again Easter monday ( few email applications sent ) Two interviews later

    Start new job April 24 then get a paid PH on tues ( Anzac Day ) :)

    New Job =
    Workshop manager/mechanic for a Tractor importer ( kubota )
    Fully autominous : only answer to the G/manager
    Base pay is slightly over the award
    plus a % of workshop turnover / sales
    But I get min two trips a year to Japan / Vietnam to vist the factorys and talk with the big wigs about any problems we have or areas that need improving !

    The one and only downside *minor* is the new job is based in N/Fitroy so i get a 115k round trip from Berwick a day.

    But over all WOO HOO
  2. Hey Bobsicle, congrats on the job. Hopefully I start my new job on the 22nd May. A long wait but it should be worth it :grin:

If it's any consolation Bob, I start a new job on Wednesday 26/4, coming from the tools with a company cage (tradesman, outside/run own race) to technical support/sales, had to buy own cage and will be office bound...I'm also looking forward to the 200 odd k round trip while no longer having a fuel card to abuse...... gotta look to the future possibilities....
