I may well be a little quiet for awhile; I am currently struggling to come to terms with the fact that last week after 4 years in my current job (which I love) my employer informed me last week that I am to be made redundant. Which gives me 6 weeks to either find a new job or I will be unemployed for the first time in my life. It is somewhat ironic that the best job that I have ever had is the one that gets taken away from me. This weekend has been spent getting myself ready to try and get another job; which give the current economic climate may be hard but I will give it my best shot and if the worst happens & I become unemployed I have enough insurance plus a little bit of savings which means I will be able to survive for a few months. I certainaly have enough crafting stash to keep me occupied I will however have to make some drastic changes to my spending habbits but maybe a period of watching what I spend will be no bad thing.
