I posted on here 6 weeks ago that my work had gone into liquidation. After 20 years I was given an hour to clear my desk.

I got a lot of encouragement from guys on here at a time when I was a bit down and I genuinely appreciate it.

Well I got a job offer today which I've accepted.

Chuffed to bits and out having a few beers to celebrate.

This is great news Irvine

I remember reading your post on losing your job , I was in the middle of pulling back my skin and it saddened me greatly
I recall just lying back and closing my eyes and thinking about all the unemployed men in the world , sitting up the park in their thin clothes and rough hands

And then I got a whiff of sweet pickles and chlorine and felt a wet dribble running down my grip and I knew my job was done
I wasn't finished however ....and still holding it... I quickly put on some lipstick and then rolled myself over and reached for the umbrella that the Mrs had left

Wait...what was the question??
