Like Arkwright might say, it’s been a funny kind of two weeks.
As I’ve posted before, I was gobsmacked by the helpful and kind emails and texts that flooded my inboxes following this post about my redundancy.
So I’ve been busy catching up with old bosses, mates from two jobs ago, uni friends and the like. I’ve also (rather pleasingly) got several meetings in the diary with agencies about freelance Planning work and have even written a couple of proposals and got my first proper commission. So a promising start.
My agency were thoughtful enough to say goodbye at the start of a heatwave, so I’ve obviously been making the most of the riding / mooching in the garden opportunity. In fact I’m taking advantage of the lovely weather while it lasts and have cleared a few days to go to the seaside, so no more posts ‘til I’m back.
PS can anyone recommend a durable, reliable, light, big-enough-to-work-on-all-day laptop? Thanks.

Glad to hear its working out OK so far. When I went solo I bought myself a Macbook having been on a corporate PC for lord knows how long and I would defnitely recommend anyone to do the same.
