After 29 years of constant employment, I decide it’s time to move my work-life balance a bit closer to home. Well, actually, into my home… so I hand in my notice, set up a retro website (can a website be retro?), order some pretty business cards with a cutesy message on the back saying “Don’t forget to write”, to remind myself as much as anyone else, and hey presto, here I am! It is the antidote to selling my soul: I have restored it to its original ownership and it feels very good indeed.
