@Twiglets, I'm really sorry to hear about your redundancy. That sucks balls.
I was made redundant in my old job (many years ago now) and at the time I was so mad and insulted and embarrassed. BUT....It turned out to be the best thing that ever could have happened to me. I wasn't happy in the job anyway and as soon as I made it known around town what had happened, I got two job offers. It was like one door closing and the others all opened. I wish the same for you hon
