    You're so simple you make life like complex in comparison.

    However, I am worried about returning after taking time out - people don't tend to like a gap. I am also worried about not being able to resist looking. Those that take time out, how do you manage it? Those that don't, how do you keep sane?
    Depends on the gap and how close the scrutiny is likely to be - I don't put months on my CV or LinkedIn profile (some people I know don't even put years!) so have never found it an issue at all. Having said that I have never contracted (independently rather than as a permie consultant) in the PS so might be different there if they go through stuff with a finer comb for vetting etc.
