    LDV closing is a wounder for me, it was my money tree All good things have to come to an end though hey! Other than a few companies not paying me, finding it hard to get stock these days, and people wanting margins making smaller it has not made much differance to me as yet and I am super busy.

    Feel for those that are finding it hard though, aand there are plenty of them!!

    I was told two weeks ago that my job was safe and then got told yesterday that two of us are going to be made redundant. So quite worried at the moment.

    best thing is not to listen to gordon brown and spent our way out of reccession.

    as iv been saying to everyone effected, save save and save. get rid of all unwanted credit cards and loans etc.

    im lucky to be in the fast food industry, things have got bussier, but as Mat says it hard to get supplies, or suppliers are not offering many credit terms, not even 30 days!

    it will take a good few years before we ride it out, i guess its a good lesson for the younger generation, and also make it easier to buy property.

    my job has got quieter but luckily I'm still employed. My wife's employer went through a consultation period but luckily she wasn't one of the ones who got let go of. They are now going through another.

    But as my income is still the same, I spend money just the same. As long as I stay in employment, I'm a happy man.
