Change for the Better

After a scandalously short time (four months for goodness sake) I'm leaving my job in London and starting a new one much closer to home.

It's a shame as I like London very much, and also enjoyed my job there - it had plenty of variety, and being a small company, what you did actually mattered.

The new job is also with a small company, but doing very traditional nuts and bolts engineering, once the backbone of the British economy and now relegated to small niches of excellence (see Formula One).

As so often with life, it's impossible to know whether this is the right decision or not - the only way of knowing is with hindsight. All any of us can do is to weigh up the various factors and make the best choice we can with incomplete or even inaccurate data.

Wish me luck...
