Thanks everyone and I'll be honest and say it was all a bit of a mission particularly when I just couldn't continue with the phone~iPad method due to the quality of the pictures. In saying that I enjoyed it but was trying to be mindful of not making it boring and it's something I would never had thought I would do. There's a remote possibility I'll be going with the wife on her incentive trip to Dubai next year if she achieves the necessary. If that transpires I'll give it another go. In the meantime I need to get the work situation sorted,my thoughts back to where they should be and obviously earn some money! I was working through an agency basically labouring on building sites for abominable money but it was better than nothing before we left. Due to this trip it was next to impossible to hunt too hard as obviously I need to be available long term. I knew I was unfit but struggled with that and was feeling pretty despondent. I'm sure age has caught up with me as it wasn't that long ago I could and did do heaps of that sort of work without problems. Mind you with the amount of walking I've done in the last few weeks I think my fitness levels will have picked up! Not to be too revolting but my blisters aren't pretty. I had hoped to be returning to a full time job at The Crown Complex in Perth but even with 30+ years experience in my trade I didn't even make the interview process which was a kick in the guts. I have definitely asked a few questions of myself in regards to career path but time will tell. In the immediate future I've reinvented my old company and will do my best to get the amount of work that I used to just over 5 years ago. I'm hoping to get enough to keep me going and build up as I did before but times have changed. We'll see but I still don't regret leaving the poisonous place that I did work as I honestly think it was having an affect on my mental health.
