    As some of you already know, i am moving from PAYE to a 3 months contract at my work.

    this is so I can work 4 days a week and have a extra day to window clean (fridays)
    I have too many customers 218 last check and I have been working weekends (sat and sun) to keep up.

    so I have my meeting on Wednesday and I basically said I don't want to just leave during Christmas but I do want to leave after the new year, say end of January.

    My boss already heard via the grapevine that I was planning on leaving in January so offered me this deal.

    It was a honest meeting and there was no lying from both sides. I just talked to him over a beer as one director to another, since I have a LTD company.

    I am happy and hes happy (the other director sits behind me and hes a saffer like me)

    result...

    So I gave him my resignation and signed my contract which starts 5 November. Lucky I had booked a week off at the end of the month and its paid for by the company so thats going to be my last holiday as a paye.

    yes, my wife was a bit nervous because she does not work but is a full time mom, we have a 2.5 year old boy. but the money is only dropping from one job and I said to her I have too much work to do on the weekend and I also need to have a sunday off once in a while..

    by the end of this month I will have worked for almost 30 days straight... but after that life starts getting back to normal... YAAAAA cant wait

    That's good to hear mate as its the one thing I worry about lol.

    We have a team meeting at half 2, bearing in mind they cut the bonus by 95% last month, I'm worried slightly, but then apart of me thinks one door closes another opens.

    too true mate .

    my life is a prime example of this !!!


    in July last yr I suffered a sudden cardiac arrest and died twice !
    I had a very good paid job working nights and i also had my own welding and fabrication business growing too
    i was on very good money and everything was going to plan .
    we had booked our family holiday booked our wedding and then bang everything had gone at the bat of an eye .

    it took me 12 months to get back on my feet but im getting there slowly but surely .
    my wife has started a job and im doing this and to be honest you learn not to dwell on the past .
