Well, I hate to be miserable, so I promise I won't be, but I was made redundant just over a week ago, completely out of the blue. I went from having
a secure...so I thought...job, that I didn't really like but could put up with and work at, to being out of work in less than 30 minutes. All I
wanted to do was talk to my boss about a few problems we were having and the first thing he did was put the redundancy letter in my hand. Clearly it
was planned, and very badly handled.
I'm taking the view that the Universe has a different plan for me and a "hate it but it pays the bills" job isn't right, no matter how much I was
willing to make it work. I have no other offers just now, so I'm making the best of the little bit of free time I have till something else turns up,
and working on my website.
My heart goes out to anyone who finds themselves in this situation, or threatened with it. All I can suggest is that you take the advice about food
storage and try to save a little cash if you can. Make yourselves safe, as much as you can, financially speaking. Keep your heads up, and be flexible.
