I lost my job :(

By the title of this post, you already know what I am going to talk about. I lost my job yesterday :(

It seems that my ability to learn the skills required for the position were not good enough or fast enough... the real reason I believe is a bit more complex; they lost a client, the property market is very quiet & I was a bit like a square peg in a round hole - so, I find myself back in the job market.

Now for some good news!

Hubby & I have been so disorganised this past year that we only sent off our 2007/2008 tax return to the accountant in January. The good bit is that we are getting some money back - so that will pay the car registration & finalise a few other things - so at least I don't have to stress about that.

AND I have tried today to make myself feel more positive & not focus on the fact that there are lots of people with similar skills to myself that are also looking for work. I spent several hours speaking to Centrelink about unemployment support & sent of my application for three jobs - hopefully I will get an interview from at least one of the applications.

I also indulged in a bit of overdue shopping - well that was my excuse & I'm sticking to it!

I purchased a picture frame to inspire myself to finish designing & stitch a present for an old friend who just became a Dad for the second time & I purchased a blank canvas on which I will create a 40th birthday present for a friend. I better not tell you too much about either of these presents or the recipients will know what to expect before they get them!

So, after a busy day you would think that I would be spending the evening with hubby? Actually, no - he's working nightshift tonight & tomorrow night - so that means I get the bed all to myself - yeah!

Yes, I know I sound mean but he snores & there are some nights when even I don't get a decent sleep but for the next two nights I will. The funny thing is this is exactly what he just said to me before he left for work!

When I started this blog I wasn't sure how much of my life I would want to share - just the good stuff or everything??? I guess it's a question that everyone who has a blog has to ask themselves when things like this happen.
  • Do you share?
  • Do you keep the blog going & pretend that everything is OK?
  • Do you post something happy to try & counteract what has happened?
  • Obviously, I've decided to share everything - even the bad stuff!
I would love to hear how you came to your decision [if you have a blog] or what you think you would do [when you start a blog].

Anyway, until next time. Take care & stay safe.
