Cripes, hippy, I missed that one completely: awful situation to be in. No chance you have mortgage protection to soften the gamble? Obviously dont know the specifics of your industry, but my but own feeling is always to hang on and try to find another job while still in employment, rather than jump first and rely on a cash float. My own career and finances are a carcrash, and I often feel it's this tendency to delay my exit that has been a big part of the problem, so heed your own counsel! You do have my sympathy, though.

Surely you'd still get the pay out if your job was made redundant? Plus mortgage payment protection insurance normally kicks in (assuming you have it). I'm not sure if that's the case If you volunteer for redundancy. So check these things out as part of your decision making.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

We've all been there. The sooner you apologise (whether it's your fault or not), the sooner it'll be behind you. My advice, for what it's worth, is to not let the situation fester - buy her a bit of her favourite thing and make peace.

Shark speaks the truth. Apologise soon and regardless, small token never hurts. You're stuck with your siblings to the end, may as well make the journey as pleasant as possible.

Sorry, somehow clicked on page 1 of the thread and thought it was the most recent post.  Never been good at reading dates. 
Just when Steev was living it down, as well!

Could've been worse. Could've been bumslug.

Went to my car this morning only to find it had been swiped down the driver's side. No information, no note, no class.

Twanged a muscle in the back of my leg - walking like an octogenarian looking for his Zimmer.
