Well he's not lazy ........ he has a job.

The issue is how much change do you want, are you that ambitious that you want to divert your time outside of work back into work.

Because that's what moving to a new setting does, learn the ropes, prove yourself all over again .......... so it comes down to, for what?

If you need more money then damn straight, if you don't and you have secure employment then what are you risking it for?

I made the jump because of those things, I was in a job for 6 years, realised I had reached the max of the money they could pay me and there was no way up unless it was management, I tried Team leader which was bit hybrid half management half worker role but I didn't want admin and management, meetings and doing the books.

So I left and got more money, then left there and got more at the place I'm at now and bought my house within the first 2 years of me working there ........... but it wasn't easy, you have to work hard and smart to do what I do and its still not easy to this day, but I am glad I did it and have about 12k a year more per annum than the job I left.

I sometimes think about moving as I've been here 5 years now, but again, what for and why, yes I may be able to squeeze another 3-5k per annum by moving ........... but it maybe worse, I may not get that and the job might be hell.

What I do know is I don't want to be on less money than I'm on, that's going backward and I can squeeze some more money out of where I am now if I work a bit harder so ................

Not worth moving for me at this time.

On holiday in Spain at the moment. Sat by the pool, I swatted a wasp earlier. Now I've just watched a big ant come along and drag it about 20ft across the pool terrace, vertically up a 5ft stone wall, and down the other side. It has disappeared with it into the undergrowth.

Amazing creatures. That wasp was at least ten times his size.

Just saw a green parakeet on my bird feeder.

Not seen one in my garden before.

Just learned that GIF is supposed to be pronounced "Jif", like the peanut butter.

I refuse to say it like that.

It's the correct way. The creator said it should be pronounced that way, and he has the clout in this matter tbh

Cats are suicidal too when it comes to roads.

I kid you not, they stand on the pavement waiting for a car to come along, then dash across the road as if they are on some sort of dare.

Shattering when you find out you’ve spent 20 years saying it ‘wrong’, might as well just stick with it by that point :lol:
