But no-one is celebrating just yet and there's a sense that global economy recover remains a work in progress.

"You always have to have a back up plan as you can't depend on anyone to protect you- it's such a shame. My dad eventually opened his own forklift service company & "the rest is history". Hat's off to all of you who are in the same situation as the author.".
