I'm back in my old job. I think they realised that there is still some more work to get finished and it's easier to do so when someone is sat there ready to tackle it.
This is good news because it would have been easy to completly run out of cash by being out of work for a while, on the other hand it would have been good to start a brand new contract. Even more good news is that there is a new contract on the horizon, in London this time, and it's looking like I'm going to get it.
What I need to think about doing is setting up a Limited Company rather than contracting for others, I may do that soon. I may also be able to get some work for Mrs T to help me out, that would be good for both of us.
