Well things happen in threes they say and three horrible things have happened, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday!! So that's it no more!!

Monday I found out I was being made redundant. Three years with the company and out on the scrap heap..but refuse to get down and want to make something positive out of it.  Firstly, economising, well we knew for ages we would have to do it anyway so this is the sharp short shock we need.  Mark is so very supportive and I know we will get through this together.  Secondly, improve my crafting.  OK A lot of my new found spare time will be devoted to job hunting, butrather than sit and wallow I will try and improve my craft work.  Thirdly, give up smoking and improve my overall health. So there you have it.  I wont go into the oether things because they concern other people, but no one is hurt and no one died, and will work themselves out, I just didnt need that on top!

So...keep your fingers and toes crossed for us that we make it through..Thanks for listening XX (Food parcels gratefully accepted!)

Paula, sorry to hear about the redundancy. I hope you find something soon but in the meantime take things easy, do a bit of crafting and spend some quality time with Mark. Things will come right in the end and if you can give up smoking you'll get a new lease of life as well!!!

best wishes, Kym xxx

Myrt said... Paula, life sure doesn't treat one fair at times, does it. Just keep that great attitude you have and "it will all come out in the wash" as my mother would have said.
I didn't know you smoked but glad to hear you're going to have enough health issues, my dear friend. Craft your heart out and I'm totally pulling for you and Mark to get through these down times. Love ya!
