So, I haven’t written a blog post in, lyke, forEVA.
I guess that’s what happens when you’re actually busy – living starts and recording stops.
But now I have (mostly) all the time in the world. Why? Because I got made redundant from my post at Millets. The new owners of the business decided for whatever reason that our store needed to be closed.
It’s been about a week since the store officially closed, but for some reason it feels longer. Maybe it’s because the days are longer, maybe it’s because of the odd sleep pattern I have right now (day 1, 6am-10pm; day 2, 10am-11pm). But I quite like it. Maybe part of it is because it doesn’t feel like a lost job, and more like a holiday.
I’ve gotten so much done around the house. Mostly cleaning, but looking at the state some of it’s in, it’s a good thing I have all this time!
For those of you worried about the money side of things, you don’t have to. My redundancy packet means that I have about 2 months worth of pay, and I’ve also applied for Jobseekers. And if that wasn’t enough to dispel the worry, I have income protection insurance, and Andy’s pay will cover everything anyway.
So once the house is clean from top-to-bottom and inside out, I plan on taking the pile of ‘to get rid of’ stuff to charity/ car boot sale/ dump, and finish the spare room tidy. And then, who knows? Maybe more G3 work, maybe I’ll get another job. Only time will tell.
But I’m pretty excited about it all right now
