I might even get to code the tax changes. It's all work.
They seem to be running scared at the moment.

There was "no option" but to sell the house to fund the cost of the home, which they are very happy with but is costly at £700 a week, says Susan.
"After a while it dawned on Mum that this was for good. She became very low when the house was actually gone."
My uncle felt just the same way when his house had to be sold to pay nursing home fees when he had terminal cancer. I thought the NHS was for sick people like that, but there you go. He was an independent sort who spent every spare minute on the house and it broke his heart having to sell it. Naked he came into the world and naked departed it.
Once upon a time families would care for their elderly. Now fewer and fewer even care for their own children.
The number of stay-at-home parents has fallen by a fifth to its lowest level in 15 years, a YouGov poll has found.
Now, 2.2 million parents stay at home, down on 2.8 million in 1993, the survey commissioned by uSwitch.com said.
Many of the 2,198 adults surveyed - of which 1,391 were parents - cited the rising cost of living as the main reason for returning to work.
We were lucky that I earned enough for Susan to stay at home for eight years. For many it's a choice between raising your own kids and keeping a roof over your head. Yet some people manage it, sacrificing the holidays and consumer durables for the chance to raise the next generation.
