The downside of being paid monthly is the long wait for the dosh, obviously. And the upside is that because of calendar month cut-off dates, sometimes you have a "five week" month. And even rares - the "six week" month. Where I actually bill six weeks consultancy in one hit. Which is a bit like getting a 50% pay rise..

Ahh. Bliss. I feel a spurt of shopping coming on (and can hear the screams from Salty: "You just cant spend it fast enough, can yer?")
