So – just over a week ago I lost my job.
The boss lady called me upstairs and told me that as I didn’t ‘fit in’ she would have to give me notice. Just like that… Just before xmas….Just when I thought I was doing so well…Just when I thought I had made friends… Funny thing life huh?
This event heralded a plunge into the darkness from which I am only just starting to creep out of. Today is the first day I feel capable of writing about it anyway, which is good. I am aided by my blessed/cursed SSRIs, which I started taking again when I felt in danger..
Not that the last couple of weeks have been all gloom though – I have made some good friends to warm my hands on, who assure me that I am the last person they would ever consider as not ‘fitting in’. And one who claims that All New Zealanders Fit In…LOL! Very sweet. I have been taken out for afternoon tea, taken out for a beer, and generally stroked and made much off and told that it’s not my fault, so much so that I am starting to believe them.
The fact remains however that we are one income down and so life is going to be a little more challenging for a while to come. Christmas will be a lot quieter that’s for sure.
For all this latest trouble we have had some great happenings since I last wrote. My friend Julie’s visit was a treat and the day after she left it started to snow – properly. And it didn’t really stop for a week or so after. This is the first time I have lived in a place where it snows and stays – very exciting it all was. There is still snow covering my back yard but rain has made it freeze and it is no longer light and fluffy.
I have tons of photos so I will start here..
