The flat I was living in has been sold so I've had to move too, but that's gone great and I've been in my new place for just over a week, and it's perfect, so that's one major worry sorted.

I've been doing a few interviews during August for jobs in my field, which is difficult when most of the city is on holiday, but progress has been good and the general reaction has been positive. I'll hopefully know more by the end of the week on this as there are a couple of irons in the fire that are looking promising, but if not, then once we're in September and people return to work, things should really start moving (I hope!).

So, in a nutshell, the honeymoon is well and truly over. I always knew I had it relatively easy and it was possible that it could all go a bit gooey, but even though it's now happened, I'm actually OK about it given that I've been wanting to leave my company for a while now but always needed a push. Now I've got one hell of a push..... out the door! jeje

So long as I get sorted in the next few weeks, I'll be fine. Any more, and there'll be a collection tin rattling around the forum! jeje
