It's been almost two months since I parted company with the Home Office - not that I have done particularly much with this time apart from improving my Sudoku skills and taking far fewer photos than I had intended. Then again I had not intended to do much before Christmas anyway.
While my settlement was not bad at all I do need to find other work sooner rather than later. One thing I don't plan on doing is commuting to Central London unless I can help it and thee is no way I will flip burgers unless absolutely necessary.
At least I have some portable skills and a qualification which should be of some help in obtaining finance work, preferably locally, but perhaps it is time to turn a self-taught skill into a source of income,
A number of people have suggested that I use my cameras to make money. I had always considered this a pocket money option at best but a recent conversation with an old friend has highlighted at least one niche market where it may be possible to make a reasonable living (nothing illegal an not porn).
I need to improve some skills before I even think of trying to hawk my services but in a couple of months time, maybe?
