More News.........

Well here it is ............. I have finally hung up my Civil Service brolly and bowler!! LOL
After 25 years serving queen and country ROFL!! I have decided to take voluntary redundancy - there has been so much going on lately and this was a huge decision to make but it was a case of now or never. I will have to look for another job and I know it's not going to be easy as there aren't many out there at the moment so it's all a bit scarey but exciting too!! So I am now officially a lady of crafting lesiure!! EEEK! although this can't be for too long as the bills won't pay themselves!
There were four of us leaving and three from my section so you can imagine my supervisor is having a nervous breakdown!! I think it will feel like a holiday at first!
All I seem to be doing lately is tip tapping on my keyboard and writing long posts!!
Now what will I do tomorrow...................................................??!!

Great news to hear you will be having more time to craft, as I love your work. SO sorry to hear that you have to take redundancy. Good luck finding a job.

Might be a bit scary for you, but congratulations on your freedom!! Even if it is short-lived, and you find a new job soon, make the most of your time by living and crafting each moment!! Don't lose this opportunity! It doesn't often strike, and it's a blessing, even if it feels like a curse!!

Ooh! What an adventure! Exciting times! When you're ready to start looking, hope you find something else easily and quickly.

Meanwhile, enjoy! :o)

Well have a little rest first before you start your new job hunt darlin xxx I think you are very brave I have to say, but sometimes, you just need to try something different. My eldest has just been made redundant (not by choice) so she is having to look for around. She is going to use it as an opportunity to re-evaluate and take stock. Anyway,good luck and love and hugs lovely Dawn xxxx

Hi Dawn, and my goodness a big decision for you! I know what you mean about scary, I've just been made redundant too but not voluntarily LOL! I'm also job hunting at the moment which does seem to take up a lot of time. Enjoy your little break from work and I look forward to your creations. Chris x
