If you were expecting a "mistletoe and wine" type seasonal tale wrapped around Great Uncle Bill and Auntie Gwen then I am sorry to disappoint you.

AdvantagesRICHADA learned lots from his dear Great Uncle Bill..........

Disadvantages........but not the kind of things that were useful in every day life!!!!!!

"...to engineering he always did everything by the "book", not necessarily using the correct pages in that book!

Remembering, Ten Years On. Updated.



"*******UPDATE******* ********I have decided to put my thoughts at the top of the old review, just to make it easier for me. Today, I was having a bit of a spring clean in the nursery. I am almost at the stage now where my baby could come at any time, so thought it would be a good idea to make sure I had cleaned the chest of drawers where the baby clothes will go.

"R for Recruitment agencies Earlier in 2009 I was made redundant from my job & started the process of looking for another. This was the first time in my working life I was without work. Things have changed considerably in the job market since the last time I looked for work & the stark realities of recruitment agencies have now been brought to my attention.
