having gone through this myself last year, the disbelief, the anger and finally the resignation! the factory and the job i thought would last till i retired in 6 years time closed and now is just level ground. i find i'm still very angry (and struggling to keep my language clean!)
i went though all the job applications, cv's etc. if i got to the interview stage i usually got offered jobs (but were total time wasters).
now a year on, i'm back in work, it's not satisfying or gratifying or what i was looking for. but it does get me out from under the wifes feet, and it pays the bills. i'm glad of that because mr cameron the new primeminister, would have robbed me as he will all the other poor saps on the dole and low payed and all the poor honest folk just as maggie thatcher did in the 80's and 90's. stop ranting phillip!
anyway, enjoy your free time while you can, cos somewhere just over the horizon another job is waiting for you, and you'll be too proud to refuse it like i was.
great song by the way, i did one along the same lines my self, but with more swear words in...great therapy!
