Worked out quite well for me as it happens. We'd just had our first baby a couple of months earlier so it meant I could bond with the baby and save on childcare costs as well.

Been offered a new job this morning so things are looking up!

3G/Blackberry engineer for one of the major banks.

Possible job loss towards end of year as they're shipping out to India!

So between us we should be able to setup 'the ultimate' business?

I took a gamble and took my bit, it's worked out fine I'm still in a similar role with a company contracting to BT (7 year contract) best thing is I no longer go into people houses, all my work now is down holes and up poles. Same can't be said on a weekend where I do some self employed telco work (set up with my pay off from BT).
