    My new years resolution is to save.

    I have a few saving accounts under my personal bank account but now have a savings account for me business which will go towards fuel or clothes instead of this coming out of my profits/wages!

    Not even thought about it. Just enjoying the time off & not even thinking about work. If I did mine would be to emulate the year I just had.

    Why don't you like commercial. Do you not find it good if your dealing striaght with the manager/ person in charge and not with some management company?
