Start date early October.
Life is looking a lot less depressing now - and my bank account will rejoice! (it's rejoicing even now as I am in the 2nd week of a 3 week job contract with the Australian Electoral Commission)
Next thing I should possibly do is begin to believe that I might still find lasting love and companionship.... might as well go for broke with the wishing! :)
