Knocked Down Again
Firstly thanks to Martin, Creed and Brian for their encouraging comments, be assured I have no intentions of quitting the blog just yet. Today however I have been knocked down again. I was summoned to a meeting at work this afternoon and told that my services are no longer required due to ‘re-structuring’. I’m gutted, just when I thought I had weathered the storm, gotten things back on an even keel and that the project was secure along comes this bolt out the blue. I’d really started to settle into this new job and felt very positive about the future, now I’m facing the unknown again and in a few short weeks there will be no salary and no car, as before I have no reserves to tide me over. To be honest I’m still in shock and unable to think logically about what this means for the future. One things for sure, the current turmoil in the world of business and finance doesn’t exactly make it a good time to be job hunting. I can’t believe I’m back in exactly the same position as I was 3 months ago, I’d like to think I can repeat my success at resolving the situation quickly but its a different world out there now and I’m not even sure I want to.
