I am still here.

I am not sure, if anyone reads my blog these days.  I haven't posted for ages but read others blogs most days.

So much has changed, new job new home.

Please say hi if you see this post. I will start posting updated shortly.

It's been a while!

Doesn't time fly! It's been an age since I posted on here.  I have however, been keeping up to date with my reading list.

So what has happened since I last posted? Not much got a job which I lost again, been on two holidays and trying to  get by without spending too much really.

My GD is 22 months old and well cute.

Don't you think?

I am still making jewellery and hoping to continue.

Lost my job!

Back at the end of April I lost my job. No proper reason given.  I was initially upset over the unfairness of it all. I then got temporary work for a week at a local firm just up the road. By 12 noon in the next working day I was at a new desk.  I knew quite a few people there.  I was made very welcome.  I am awaiting to hear about the positions I applied for.

I was paid a months wages by my last firm for breach of contract and I got paid a decent amount for last week.  I had this week off to lick my wounds.  I went out with my ex- colleagues for a meal on Monday, which they paid for.  They all expressed their sadness that I had gone.  I got various jobs done around the house which I previously hadn't had time for and ensured we had food in etc.

I have some temporary work at another firm in the next few weeks in another town, I can get there by a short train journey. Money is not great but either I shall be offered a permanent job for a decent amount of money or perhaps something else will come along.

The upside although I feel lucky in that there isn't really a downside as although my employment was terminated unfairly, I am coping well, we have paid for our Nile cruise which starts a week Monday.  I think what I am saying is is you can deal with life's challenges if you put your mind to it!

Aww isn't she cute!

Happy Easter x

Hope you all had a good break.  I am still having trouble blogging.  I have just returned from a five day break at OH parents in Newcastle.  It was good to have a break.  I am still having troubles in my life.  Not going to go into it as it is boring.

What is everyone doing tomorrow?  We are going to plant dorm more veg ready for our allotment, take our old small plastic greenhouse to my mum.  I am thinking of buying her some flowers.

A Girl called a Jack recipes

I have followed Jack's blog for a while now so when I saw her recipe book in the supermarket I did not hesitate to pick up a copy.  I used my points of course!!  I was very impressed, I knew I would be, there are some delicious recipes in her book and you literally use what you all have in.  I usually find that recipe books require a long list of ingredients which need to be purchased before you even set up the kitchen scales.  Not this book.

Well worth the money.
