What do you do during the day?
I own and run a small bike shop so my presence here is quite seasonal.
Over the next three or four months expect to see plenty of my opinions/wit/knowledge/drivel*. By mid February I’ll (hopefully) be far too busy fixing brakes, gears etc on Argos bikes to have time for idle chit chat.

Semi retired. Still working a couple of part time jobs so I can afford to go on two month tours every so often.
One job is driving out of hours doctors to house calls*, the other involves driving a different type of passenger to and from various appointments across Scotland.
* The area we cover a driver is needed so the car and equipment are still their after the house call is done and having a driver also lets the doc result the call on the laptop en route to the next call.Posted 5 years agoLeeWSubscriber

Freelance Engineering Geologist. Went freelance 4 years ago after moving to France. My sole client to date is my former employer…. Last 24 months have seen me supervising drilling 800m deep inclined holes for a prospective gold mine in Mauritania and supervising poxy shallow holes for oil pipelines across Georgia and Azerbaijan. Also do home office based geotechnical design (foundations, earthworks, slope stabilisation) etc.
Looks like I’ve niched into international work given my hands on experience, which is great, but also rubbish as away from home a lot without seeing the little monsters. Overseas day rates are quite good though…Posted 5 years agoglasgowdanMember
I’ve been running a small landscape maintenance business around Glasgow for the past 3 years. Finally found the one thing that makes me feel satisfied after years working for someone else.
The hours are whatever I want them to be, I answer only to myself and just knowing there is potential to grow as big or keep as small as I want is immensely enjoyable.Posted 5 years agoMike59Subscriber
I have my own small business, designing and building all-weather sports facilities. Mainly tennis, but also AstroTurf type pitches and multi sports courts. Private tennis courts is our core business, so get to meet a lot of famous and/or very wealthy people!
Lots of school and council work too, just to keep things in perspective.
Been going 20 years and live it, despite these difficult times.Posted 5 years ago
