    Default A new member well sort of

    I actually joined this forum in July 2012 and managed one introductory post before things became very, very difficult at work and I gave up on all online activity. Fast forward 4 years and my job was taking its toll on my health. So one day, as I was walking to work, I decided on the spur of the moment that enough was enough and I resigned.

    There wasn’t a plan, but I knew that I could survive for some time without working, and I figured that having 3 or 4 months off would give me a chance to get back on my feet. It turned out to be 9 months before I did any more work, and that is just the occasional day’s consultancy - but it pays well.

    To be honest I have never look back since that day I quit work and it seems that I can get by on far less than I expected too. Everything I have earned from consultancy work has been spent on holidays, days out, and some rather expensive bits of Canon kit that once upon a time I could never have justified buying

    So it has taken me over 5 years to get round to writing my second post in this forum. I’ll try and do a little better with my third

    I have started to put together a new Flickr page - but it is going to take some time. I may have stopped doing much online a few years back, but I never stopped taking photos Lots to catch up with on this forum too.

    Hello again and welcome back Jennifer.

    It takes courage to make such life changing decisions and your has obviously worked out well. I gave up a stressful corporate position and retrained as a Carpenter and Joiner ................ couldn't be happier.
