I don't want to spend too much cash, but it would be nice to get away for a week. That is why renting an isolated cottage appealed to me.

I could just be a hobbit for a week and potter about. IDK.

Also, I like the idea of staying in an old-fashioned hotel with a large lounge where I can sit and read.

I thought I could smoke a pipe too. IDK. Was considering going to Jersey since never been there, but it could be a magnet for OAPs.

I could do with an old BMW. It's a reliable well-built car and can do high mileage.

The problem is that I don't have a driving license as it is being renewed but stuck at the GP approval phase.

Meh. I need to get my license sorted out.

If I had an old Beemer I could just drive somewhere up north and have some quiet time.

Electric bike or a skooter are they called? Like Andrew Marr had. He's so cute. ;)

Walking holidays
I like your idea. There are some amazing little hotels. I went to one for a night by the river and sat on their seats 2 metres from the water's edge with my wine, watching the swans swim past. Coffee, bedroom, coffee, bedroom, lounge, walking in town. Nice.

I am thinking about leaving again. I find it really hard to relax around my boss. He got angry with me a couple of weeks for using my phone at work.

I am not planning to quit without another job tho. But I applied for a job last week, and got another interest today. I am going to talk with the recruiter tomorrow. In my field there is a dearth of candidates so I have a good chance of interview.

Another issue I have is that boss does not give me enough work, but also expects me to be busy all the time. It is stressful.

Also my voices have been bad lately so I am worried the stress is taking it's toll. Maybe a new job might be better for me. I hope so.

I hope you can get a less stressful job, burt :hug:

if i could afford it i'd give you the job of catsitting Tigger and Willow while I'm at work (not that they need someone there 24/7, Ebony did cause of her health issues, family member kept a eye on her while i was at work) :hug: catsitting Tigger and Willow would be a case of do whatever you feel like doing and give them cuddles when they say they want :D

Sorry to hear bad time burt. This bit stood out.

I think this is quite common. In most jobs I've been in too. There is a stupidly illogical answer to this... it's called, always pretending to 'look busy'. It's a bizarre thing, but is just necessary in a lot of workplaces.

Yeah I am going to see if I can get some interviews and take it from there. Boss is not in for the next two days, so I can chill a bit.

Boss wants to have power over me, but it stresses me out when there is not enough work to do. Especially in team meetings we have say what we are working on, and it always stresses to think what to say. meh.

thanks midnight. meh. the job has potential long term, but I am getting interest from recruiters for good jobs, and I can't justify saying no all the time. so hopefully I will get some interviews and see what else is out there.

Boss was nice to me today. He said he is pleased with my work. I feel bad for looking for jobs now. Mind you the home-based job looks really good. If I get an interview for that I will be happy.

I am trying to keep an open mind about my job. Maybe it will be better for my development if I hang on a little while longer.

I don’t have any serious mental illness, I was also pretty successful in my career and I still have thoughts on a monthly basis that my boss will trigger a “fight” and I’ll have to split..
