I don't mind telling you that although me and my other half knew it was a possibility I was not prepared for the force with which this piece of bad news hit me (let alone him). My mind has been all over the place so what the hell was I going to write about when I really had no idea where things were heading? Change is often painful, being shaken out of one's comfort zone is, generally speaking, rather uncomfortable. Both those things have been forced on us as a family (and many others - we are not alone) and it's been a pretty difficult time for all of us.
My other half, was on this occasion my better half. He rose to the occasion and has been a tower of strength. He has been quite simply amazing and it has paid off. He started his new job this week.
So are things becoming a bit clearer for me? Well yes, gradually. When the proverbial hit the fan in November we had to reassess EVERYTHING including the prospect of me getting a 'proper' job....! Mmmmm! In my next post I will tell you a bit more as I begin to put flesh on a couple of ideas I'm developing.
