Carry on contracting and since I got the MCITP 2008 DBA, I may go for 70-433 to brush up on my dev skills. None of my clients have 2012 running in anger so may leave those exams until 2014. Nice playing with it so though, on my VM's.
Interesting point on 2010 Sharepoint, may have to have a look at that.
