Lean times

Only two tenders in the European Journal for the whole of the UK today, as opposed to the normal count of around 50. We aren't out of the recession yet!

I've been teaching and had a call-out to problems at a groundwater treatment plant in Manchester, but work has been pretty quiet overall. We are tendering for some new public sector work, and hope to fill any gaps with some bread and butter consultancy. We are not too worried, as teaching is proving time-consuming enough at present.

It looks like I'm not going to be getting better than 40p in the pound from Invent Water Features' unpaid debt, and even that is based on some pretty optimistic expectations of repayment of their own outstanding debts.
