Went up to see my old bosses at Kawasaki today,they took me for lunch and when I got back they made me a formal job offer
I can start in October or when I am feeling well enough to do a full weeks work or a staged return in January
To say I am pleased is an under statement o/
Cant wait to buy a new bike for next year (groupdrink) but have to sell my house go through a divorce and find somewhere to live 1st

Outstanding!

Well done mate, as rich says you obviously know your stuff and they have seen it. I hope this makes the crap to come easier to bare.

Looking forward to seeing the new bike, whatever it is.

Great news Perks!! I'm seriously impressed how you've gritted through all this and I know you are still a long way from 100% but it seems the path is looking brighter.

Sorry to hear the divorce is still on the cards, I was really hoping with your health improving that situation may have as well.

That is truly corking news Perkles, to say I'm chuffed to bits for you would be a colossal understatement.
Sorry to hear about the divorce, however you've got a workable plan for the future which is a big part of putting your life back in order after your health is sorted. (y)

Thanks guys ,I am feeling about 20% improvement but realised I need to hold myself back bit more exercise really triggers the pain for at least three days after
I am think it might be wise to go back part time for a few months to settle in but will discuss things with my gp in September

A goal such as a return to work is an excellent marker to give yourself. Plus knowing that you've got a job to go to is a massive boost for your mental wellbeing.
