I work for a life scicence company making chemicals for medical research (I'm sure that not everyone will be happy with that!!). Before that I was an operations manager for HP (not the source) for 12 years, got made redundant, brought my wife a lovely new car, paid her debts off. 6 months later she kicked me out for a guy 15years younger than me, but I'm not bitter just skint!!!!
I write. Currently I mostly write bids for companies tendering for work - mostly in the education and children services sector. I used to write history - Roundheads, cavaliers and the English Civil War.
When I'm not doing that I'm training public servants in leadership skills and criminal justice professionals about 'Terrorism Today'...
although we are all interlinked by our 'bad relationships' we are really talented group of people with real lives and responsibilities. There are a lot of nurses who have responded and really diverse things .... What did you do in the Whisky lab Ruby??????
I own a small company, installing fire alarm systems in and around London. Started running the company out of my front room 11 years ago, after I was made redundant. I currently employ 10 people, operating from a small shop unit local to where I live.
I have no great plans for world fire alarm domination, but it does feel good to see something you created from nothing grow and prosper, and having people working for you who really want to work for you (as opposed to just having a job) is a great feeling.
It also feels good to be able to say “I Did That”; and none of the s**t that I’m going through will ever take that feeling away.
One of a small (but growing) number of things keeping me smiling.
