Work in 2018: What I Do; What I Have Done

For this post, I’d like to share details and thoughts around what I’ve been doing for work and employment over the past year. It’s something I don’t often talk about as I’ve rarely been someone who enjoys or looks forward to spending five-days of their week in one situation, with only two days to then rest and recover before starting again.

While I write this, I’d like to make it clear that I am not writing with any intent to discredit any of my employers or co-workers, past and present. These are merely my views and experiences of how I have reacted and felt in certain situations.

Samsung’s SIII has been available for a little while now, along with Apple’s iPhone 5. I spent £200 on my model and that was in a refurbished state from en eBay seller… I do believe it works out cheaper in the long run (my monthly sim-only contract costs just £10.50) and I can’t imagine that the very latest models leave any of its predecessors in a permanent state of redundancy.

Why is it that, whenever something good happens, the bad news is rarely very far away?

If you’ve been following the Chest of Drawers I’ve just finished building on the UKworkshop forums then, you’ll know that shortly before completion, I ended up buying an extra tub of stain that I didn’t actually need! This has really gotten so – warning in advance! – I felt like a bit of a rant… Continue reading…
