I think the time v money issue is very dependant on individual circumstances. For me this job came up a bit earlier than in an ideal world, but when is the world ever ideal? My kids are 8 & 10 now so not little little.
Perspective is a wonderful thing. I 'forget' given my background in teaching, that it's actually a cult if you were any good at it.
And a lot of people aren't.
That's harsh I know.
But true to every profession really.
'Cult' meaning you just had to paper over the cracks of the people that were out of their league.
It's interesting being in Education still but from an administrative perception.
I'm loving my job!
(Disclaimer: I still am in a position with direct interaction with students, I don't just arse groove in a chair in an office all day)
And fart repeatedly in that groove, can you just imagine the build up of bacteria? It would be like that scene in MIB when J opens a locker and there is a whole world in there worshipping him.
Ok, somehow (and I'm too tired to look into why right now), the online booking software for the aquathlons is asking everyone for team names. I'm actually not in a rush to get rid of it as some of them are making me laugh.
My friend is here having a rant about companies pandering to rich middle and upper class grockles who want to be seen as beach/surf lifestylers. (I made up a word there)
There are plenty of clothing and food companies here that will indulge them poshly.
I actually don't have a problem with it; business is business and tourism is one of our biggest industries down here, alongside farming.
Now the debate about second homes in Devon & Cornwall is a different matter. They are ruining small villages/economies and I'm really against them unless they are rented out all year; uninhabited for 11 months a year and I wouldn't welcome the owners with open arms for a holiday. F off.
That's enough social commentary from me tonight.
Day from hell in work today, well no, that's an exaggeration but I know I'm going to have to make myself temporarily unpopular to improve things.
But when did being unpopular ever really bother me.
I was going to run when I got home but a friend was here so I couldn't really. I'll go tomorrow evening.

And what about the people who are employed to service holiday cottages, who are locals. And of course the visitors spend money whilst on holiday ?
You can fuck a holiday cottage? I never knew.
Dave, I said I was fine about it if they were rented or let out. Not fine if they stand empty mostly.
Ok, I'm talking about second homes. None of what you've mentioned will offset the damage to the local economy of a house being empty for 11 months a year.
Holiday cottages that are let out on a regular basis are a different thing.
Which bit wasn't I clear about?
Nothing to be sorry about!
It always makes me smile when I remember one of the first conversations we had on here (the forum in general), now quite a few years ago. I posted that we were thinking of replacing my next door neighbour's house name sign to see how long it would take for him to notice that his house name had been changed from 'Grasmere' to 'Arsesmear'.
You gave me a lecture on how much you'd paid for your house sign.
When did the forums start? (I think only fb has that knowledge).
