Unplanned Silence

Just a quick note because I know it's been a long while since I posted...I've had a couple of topics in my head to post about, but life has been quite busy lately - for good and bad reasons!

Bad news first...I was unexpectedly made redundant (laid off to you Americans) at work a few weeks ago. As career-minded as I'm not, it was a total shock and it felt like a giant failure...I cried for hours upon hours the day it happened.

But life goes on and I'm slowly seeing the silver-lining: I hated my job and now maybe I can find something I at least don't hate, maybe even something I enjoy :) As much as I still want the fairytale, for now I have to support myself and no one should have to work in something they hate!

And then, the good news busy is that in-between job-hunting, I'm enjoying my beloved city again and more importantly, I'm remembering what being home all day allows me to do...I've had the very happy opportunity to cook a few full meals lately, running all over London for the absolute perfect ingredients :)

I think the dinners were a hit and I can't wait to do it again...perhaps all this time at home will also give me the time to blog a bit!

I'm sorry to hear about you losing your job Cinderella.

I had a similar experience; came back from leave and found my job had been cut. Very painful at the time but it helped to set me up where I am now

Looking forward to reading more from you

It's good to see you back, although I am sorry to hear you lost your job. It would be interesting to hear what type of job you think you would like. I know you are an aspiring homemaker, but until you find the right man to take you in hand, what would you really like to work with?
