    Massive Thanks

    Cheers Paul Yes they are indeed a great Charity and the people that go absolutely love it as you know. I spoke to Martin today on the phone and he was taken aback by the amount they are going to get it will really really help loads. Thank you for facilitating this.

    Massive Thanks

    I'm still hiding under my rock for the rest of May I just quickly logged on to see how my Charity I chose for the monthly give away did, and im over the moon to see it won the top prize of a massive £1000 (Norwich Phabclub) so I thought a quick thank you was in order, it really really will help them out loads. I just had a quick scan of the Forum and it's nice to see a few new faces on here since I have been in exile. I am IN in all the new competions that people have devised (How did I do in the Decathlon?) I see the closing date for Solarios one is the end of May so I will have a bash at that nearer the time. Thanks to the people who have sent me messages etc I'm ok just be glad when May is over...... You will all be OVERJOYED that I will come back with a "Shelf" Quiz I'm sure....... Stay lucky Adam.

    June.

    Hi all sorry just got back in from work, in answer no I'm not doing anything or going anywhere, it's just May is a hard month for me and I kind of hibernate I went into the reasons before, but I thought it would be a bit rude to just disappear without saying anything. Thanks for the messages and I look forward to reading a months worth of posts on my return. x

    Man Quits $80K Job to Work in Grocery Store

    I guess it all boils down to circumstances, when I went Part Time at the age of 40 everyone thought I was nuts. Yes I could work full time and at the end of the month have more money BUT I worked out I could go part time and with my rent from another place I own be on nearly excatly the same money bar £50.00. I don't have lots of money at all but my outgoings are £300 a month for everything insurance phone etc etc so I can maintain an ok lifestyle. I top this up with my shelf enterprise but it's more for something to do with my time. I'm on my own as well no children etc, (I do have a partner but we don't live together) so fianacily it's easier. My problem is I get bored as all my mates work Mon - Fri as well as my missus and I'm off loads, hence why I'm looking into lots of things at the moment but mainly volunteering probably with a drug or alcohol charity. Trouble is we are all on the Hamster Wheel and society and the government I feel want us to be like this, to get into massive debt to spend beyond our means etc etc so we have to keep working until we reach our "pension" then we get a few years to do what we want and desire, let's face it will there be pensions for the younger generation? I very much doubt it, work until your 70 or beyond, eventually pay the mortgage off have one holiday a year and drop dead not for me thank you very much.

    I get that I really do, as I say everyones situation is different, but I have sadly been there when lots of people took there last breath, not once did they ever say they wished they had worked more, but a a few mentioned things that they didn't do.

    Why don't you do something you get enjoyment out of? I realise most people have commitments Mortgage Family etc etc, but we are a long time dead and I chose my own happiness over most things, maybe I'm selfish and I do not have certain ties others have. (Dare I ask) what would be your idea job?

    Very very true I work 8 days a month and the other days I do what I want to do. I'm 45 next month and I plan on not doing any kind of work other than volunteering.

    Man Quits $80K Job to Work in Grocery Store

    When I was married I was National Area Manager for a well known Car Rental firm (first job I had after I had beaten drug addiction was with the same firm but as a car cleaner and I worked my way up) I was on 52k a year the wife was on 45k a year in a high up position with a the local Council, we on the face of it had it all, two houses, old VW Spiltscreens, we both had company cars and I had a Porsche as weekend car. I would dread going into work, ever time I nearly left they gave me more money and more holiday etc etc. We lost a Child and the marriage went bang, I walked out on the wife and left her everything we owned, I was homeless but still earning crazy money, I spent most nights in hotels alone and sad, I very very nearly went back on the gear, but I read an advert for carers looking after young adults and children with learning disabilities, I applied turned up at the interview in a car worth 50k ( company BMW ) walked in and they thought I was taking the piss, I eventually convinced them I wanted the job, it took about 6 months as my criminal record was a huge problem but they gave me a chance. The day I left my work handed my company car back was one of the best days of my life, and it was like being reborn. My starting salary was for £8,500 a year. Money is not the B all and end all.
