No, in fact my current one is. I started off at the current role on 5 days but midway through last year arranged 1 day a week working from home.
Because I’ll be the only software developer on the new team, most of my work will be autonomous. I may well have that discussion after a few months but I’m definitely joining under the impression it’s 5 days.
In a few years time, I’m intending in leaving London in the wing mirrors and starting my own firm.
I have to move out of my current place. It’s a terrible arrangement in that I’m living in my mum’s house but bleeding out £1.5k a month in her bills etc. We’ve come to the agreement that we’ll both move out; she’ll move in with her boyfriend, and I’ll buy somewhere.
Renting in the interim isn’t really something that excites me, because it’s then very hard to save for a place and you’re paying someone else’s mortgage. I’ll see if I have enough friends to rent a flat in medway with and buy somewhere mad like Ipswich. Spreadsheet says that I’d probably save £250 a month in travel with that arrangement so anything under 450 all in might not be a bad shout.
I have (two) workshops at present. The garage is full of woodworking machines and tools, and I’ve built a separate one that stores all my mechanic stuff for the car and bikes. And then I’ve got a car and two bikes. Both are things I’m not really willing to part with - so I’ve made this quite tricky for myself!
