Made up my mind


Hello all

Sorry for lack of posts and hello to new followers.

Hope you are all well, I have been reading just not posting.

Still with my employment issues...but it's good news.

I did self employ but the work was not coming through as quickly as I needed and we prepared to tighten our tight belts. Then 2 job offers came through. One as a self emp for a while and one as an employee. Both great jobs and both very different. What a wonderful dilemma. I accepted the employee one as it was a more practical choice. But also the interview was one of the most casual and relaxed I have ever had. It has an atmosphere that really suits my character as well as a good future career choice.

I started today and had great fun. What a relief.

How are all the pets coping with fireworks. Suse is doing better that last year but still really suffering. She has her special collar on.

Few changes with my son he has given up on his football team but is now running his own 5 a side team and is a lot happier. He has also given up his music lessons that he has been attending since he was 4. He gave up on grading a while ago - he was meant to have his grade 4 on the day my mum died and it was like his heart was never in it since. The school tried to accommodate by adjusting lessons etc and that gave his enthusiasm a boost. But it has since become obvious his heart was no longer in it. It saves money I guess but I never minded that as he really has a great ear for music. I have a feeling that studying music at GCSE put the final dampner on it. Goodness knows what they did but he was miserable through it all and yet had always loved his private lessons. O well.

Keep well

  2. His ear for music will continue and it will thrive without the exams and grades. I don't know what he plays but he will carry on if not now one day and he will be even better I bet. I checked your blog the other day but knew you were still around because we have talked of West Ham but I wondered. Work is ok and what you make it, some days are good and some are bad, even at the beginning. be lucky Hazard..xx

    1. thanks Rachel. he does love his music but seems content to just listen for now. Shall leave him be for now. He plays piano/keyboard and hopefully he'll go back like you say, I can't play a note on anything you see. x

  4. A job that's fun sounds good. That's the trouble with exams - forcing people down a narrow road but a love of music will probably be good in so many ways
