I just spent 20 minutes trying to look away.

A rather subdued one, but I might open a Guinness with my dinner tonight! I've been after one for about a year and lo and behold a position was open at the sister company (more ex-wife company really) of the one I work for.

I didn't get that but they created a position for me because they felt I was too experienced for the other one, and they wanted me on board. I'll be doing exactly the same job for 50c more an hour

Probably not during the day, unless I get good 4G reception to post on my phone at lunch but I'll be on evenings and weekends as and when the time allows.

I won't be away completely, anyway.

Most of the time, in the evening, I just sit and post on my phone in front of the telly, until I can get back onto my computer again. I'll be around, in some shape or form.

Even if I have to get up 15 minutes earlier, just to do the trivia challenge ...
