I didn't really know what I wanted to do when I left school. In quick time I was a carpet fitter, factory work and civil servant before my parents decided they were moving to Germany. I didn't want to go but couldn't see how I could afford to stay in England on the pittance I was earning so I joined the RAF as an Electronics Technician - more money and somewhere to live!
9 years later I'd had enough of that so I left and got a job selling pest control. Lasted a year in that then worked as a self employed courier for 18 months. Got fed up with that (and my bike died!) so got a job back in electronics, fixing ATMs for Philips. Stayed there for 18 years (although they weren't Philips for very long, several buyouts along the way), changing jobs as the business changed, moving into computers. Ended up training people to fix laptops before being made redundant 6 years ago.
No clue what to do then so I became a Basic Skills Tutor in the Welfare to Work industry, teaching adults literacy and numeracy. Worked unpaid for four months, went to college to get various qualifications and finally got a paid job working for the YMCA!
General Election, government change, contracts cancelled and I was transferred into my current role as an Employment Advisor - still working in the Welfare to Work Industry.
I enjoyed it. Admittedly there have been better specials (The Vietnam one was my favourite) and I usually enjoy the weekly show more than the specials anyway but I still thought it was ahead of most of the rubbish on telly this Christmas.
Steve I saw about that upgrade. My phone doesn't support an SD card but there's plenty of room. I could fit most of Europe on there if I really needed to.
Not sure why it wouldn't work on the tablet. It's a 10.1 inch screen though so too bulky for the car anyway. It might be worth buying a cheap tablet though, I've seen mounting brackets for a 7" one. Having said that, I think the screen on the phone is fine anyway, like I said, my TomTom isn't much bigger and, being much older technology, isn't anywhere near as good quality.
