Big Changes...


So, this post is quite a personal one. If you don’t follow me on Twitter or know me personally, this will be all new information for you, but something big has gone on in our personal lives.

I debated for the longest time about whether to even talk about this on here, because its so personal, but also it affects lots of the posts and I write and had been planning on uploading.

So two weeks ago, I was off work with Harry as he had picked up chickenpox. Sam and I have always worked out taking time off fairly and take it in turns. We knew when Harry had been diagnosed with chickenpox we would need childcare for around a week, so decided that I would take off the Monday and Tuesday and Sam would be off Wednesday and Thursday – I then would be off for my normal day off on Friday.

Around quarter to six, I was sitting in our living room and my phone started to ring. I looked at who was calling and saw a mobile number I didn’t recognize so I ignored it. Am I the only person who doesn’t answer numbers they don’t recognize? Basically, if you aren’t saved in my contacts don’t bother calling me. I’m not answering.

I had a voicemail so listened to it. Then I googled the company the woman was calling from and it came up auditors. She had said in the message she was calling about the company that I worked for so my anxiety started up. What had I done? If you didn’t know I worked for a small car insurance company.

I then got a call from a friend at work who told me the company had gone into administration and we had all been made redundant.

So I am currently job-hunting and being a stay at home mum. I’ve never not had a job and it been really hard for me to adjust, but two weeks in, I think Harry and I have fallen into a nice routine. I’m really happy with the timing as Harry now only goes to nursery in the term time so he’s off for the summer.

I have a few interviews lined up which is scary. I hate job interviews, but I think the scariest part is not actually getting another job because we actually can’t afford for me to be out of work.

I wanted to put this post out here as a lot of my content is about working full time, which I am obviously not doing right now, so a lot more of my posts may be about being at home and job searching for a while. Please bare with me! 

Fingers crossed for me guys!!

Harry's birth story seemed like a fitting first post on here. Bear with me because it was written months ago. More posts to follow ever...
