Thanks all - sorted out a pay off today which is ok , especially given the short time I was there so it's not tesco value bread and beans just yet :D

Martin - the Lego division I worked for was signage, not the toys (we just still got staff discount ;) ) - big hospital/education PFI , government, hospitality and major corporate stuff and that has almost over night dried up. We have a lot of existing orders on books that will still deliver but the new intake is crap. Trouble is the MD is a sales and marketing person so teh knee jerk is to remove the back office staff and increase ales people - great but now who delivers what is on the books :rolleyes: I'm past arguing this type of issue so have taken the money and run :D

The door is open Bob - but be quick as I'm cutting the expense of running an office myself.

This time round is worse for me than 7 or 8 years ago. :(

Anyway - you've got all my details :)
