A New Beginning

3 Jan

So today it became official.  After 7 years and I have no idea how many months, my husband is now officially redundant.  I guess the timing could have been better, but it could have been worse too!! As of 2 pm this afternoon he has no longer got a job.

Even though we knew it was coming it still came as a shock, he just rang and said he was coming home and that was that! I am trying not to panic, we knew it was going to happen and in some ways it’s a lot easier now we know.  Worrying about it is not going to change anything and it’s not going to find him another job, so we are taking a more positive approach.




Not sure it’s the best approach however it’s been a very long day so “Cheers!!”  Here’s to new beginnings!!

Life is always unpredictable. It’s always uncertain and we never know what is around the corner.  We have each other, a very supportive family, some wonderful friends and 3 gorgeous children who are our everything.

We will get through this and we will be fine, one door closes and another one opens somewhere else! I am hoping the trick is to stay positive and concentrate on the good things in life!! Surely that’s got to be the best motto?! Worrying is not going to get us anywhere! Who knows what the next few weeks are going to have in store for us, but I am going to try to approach them with a smile on my face for now at least!

    good luck, and no I quite agree worrying will not achieve anything. My advise is just to be sensible, watch what you spend and if you have any loan protection on anything then claim on it. Biggest shock that came to me was oh was only entitled to job seekers allowance for 26 weeks, because I work and earn slightly more than income support level then he gets nothing.

    Well done for remaining so positive i know it a really worrying time. My husband got made redundant out of the blue only 5 hours after our little boy was born (hows that for timing.) We managed to get through it, selling un wanted items and buying sensibly. New doors will open for you try not to worry xx

    Your attitude in the face of adversity is inspiring! But the new year is a great time for new job opportunities. I wish your husband the best of luck! xo
