I don't envy your journey, having to justify yourself via the written word. Actions speak louder that words.

It's no bother mate. Just sending CVs out.
I'm not too bad at speaking with people face to face.
Besides, it's not like I'm just starting out looking for work as a teenager. I'm looking forward to the interviews. If I get any If I don't I'll just stay where I am and keep trying.

What about going it alone and not being answerable.

You mean go self-employed? Too risky mate. I wouldn't know what to do or where to start.
No mate, I'm 54 and winding down now. A few years until I'm 60 then it's part-time for me. Or finish completely if I can.
We'll see how things go.

Eventually mate, yes of course.
I also have my wife to consider because she is 10 years older than me. She will be 70 when I'm 60.
My main plan is to go part-time at 60 when I get a RAF pension also, doing something really different and enjoyable. We'll see what happens.

Find out what you like doing best, and get someone to pay you for it.

Good luck in your job search. RAFA might be able to help.
