Little update on how things are going

I haven’t written in my blog in a while. Sorry for neglecting you blog.

I’m typing this on my phone while waiting for the kids pizza to cook.

I had a night out last night as it was my best friend’s birthday last Thursday.

I had a little bit of help from a friend making her birthday present. Which she loved (and wore out last night).

I made her a bracelet and matching earrings.



So last night was fun. This is me and Nat. My wife:


I got back around 2am and had some food and then went to bed. The kids were at my parents’ house last night and I went over this morning to pick them up and have a cup of coffee while we played Bagatelle – a game that my parents have had since I was a child!

Lala was so sweet. She said to Grandad as he was having his turn and doing quite well “I’m so proud of you, Grandad”. So sweet!!

Today we’ve just been chilling. I’ve been getting a few chores done around the flat while the kids played and had a bit of iPad time.

Now I’m cooking them pizza for dinner.

So what else is going on?

Job Hunt

Well, I left my job last week and I haven’t had any work this week – I had a couple of temp jobs in the pipeline but they kept getting cancelled. I now have some temp work booked from next Wednesday but it is a bit of an odd job. Involving a lot of travelling and I’m nervous about how it is going to fit in around the kids.

I’m waiting to hear back from an interview that I had last Tuesday. They have told me they will let me know middle of next week. I’m hopeful and at present this is my only role that I’ve been put forward for so I’m seriously hoping they come up with an offer. If not I don’t know what I’m going to do because the temp job is not paying a huge amount and I don’t know if I can make all my bills on what I’ll be earning. Good job I have the matched betting – and a bit of savings put aside – or I would seriously be panicking right now. As it is I am worried and stressed and this has to have an impact on the kids even though I’m trying not to show it around them.

Do I regret handing my notice in without having something else to go to? I think maybe I was a little hasty. But I really did hate it. And I couldn’t see any other option, once I’d told HR that I wasn’t happy. And I really thought I would find something else by now.

Hopefully something will turn up and I’ll be okay. In the meantime, I need to see if there is anything I can sell.

I hope you are well and thank you for reading.

Please comment so I know I'm not alone out here!
