Well, after over two years of being messed around and told I'm being made redundanct now, then three months, six months, a year later, yesterday I finally received my "official" three months notification of redundancy. Sad? You bet, after 14.5 years I will be sad to say farewell. but it's happening to all my company (in fact we're already down from 1500 two years ago to c200). But now life's insecurities are raising their heads and today I'm feeling a little , but I know I will soon back. Just need a likkle encouragement from anyone who's been in the same situation to assure me it'll all work out My biggest fear is the next three months will really drag by, but I've got bucket loads of paperwork to sort/bin/file/shred, so am sure three months won't seem that long at the end, and the best news of all is that I get to have school summer holiday off with my DD for the first time ever . . . and even better a fantastic trip to Mouseville in October.
