it turns out that i might have to re-apply for my own job very soon. going through the whole interview process and competing with new applicants. if i get it i'll be working full time - 37hours rather than my current 35 - and will be given a 'permanent' contract, as well as various entitlements like more holiday time and a very slight pay rise.
which is quite good.
taking it would mean that i'll be unable to move back to newcastle. an opportunity for which has also recently come up, although it would be august before it actually happens.
so, should i take the job and it's relative security or move to someplace where i'd have to find a new job and be much poorer than i am now?
