    I myself am a stay-at-home dad. Which means I make shitty pay(as in none), get no bennys and littel to no appreciation. I used to be a screen printer but that went south.

    unemployed, not signing on, luckily got some savings to get me by for a bit till i find my path, used to be a self employed PAT tester with my step dad (piss easy, almost 100% profit from every job, but boring and hard to find work as it isnt mandatory atm) that only lasted a few months.
    Was doing some screen printing myself over xmas, messy business, lol.

    Hopefully will be taking off to do some travelling this year with a m8 of mine.

    Tis good. Interesting, can be a bit under pressure at times... Especially when things break during production hours. If you don't fuck up though is alot less stressful lol.

    Got nice pension scheme and well, yes the pay is not to be sniffed at lol. Got guys here twice my age with 4 kids, 2 cars and mortgage... So should be a career for live.

    Some of my equipment was payed for from a compensition claim for breaking my arm when I was knocked off my bike outside my school though. I was the only 16 year old with DJM-800 and what not...

    Third 1210, deck stands and the tascam portable recorder im going to use for recording life sets is the recent additions.

    I know you've mentioned the bike thing before recently. What was the deal with that? Did you get pegged by a car or something?

    Not trying to be too personal or anything. :)

    Yeah I cycled out of the school bike sheds and onto the correct side fo the road. Passed a stationary car in the road which as I came alongside pulled across into my path to park without indicating or checking the mirrors.

    I smashed into the bonnet and did a super man leap through the air landed on all fours and did a few rolls. Got up to tell her how much of fucking bitch she was, then realise I'd probably broke my arm lol... Was in cast for 6 months!
