Work situation has taken a turn for the worst. Suffice to say, prospects are bleak. I cannot remember a time when there was more at stake and I find myself unemployed. It is imperative that I find something soon as our family unit is preparing for commitments to University and A-levels. It’s now become apparent that of us who took advantage of a ‘mortgage holiday’ from our lenders will be penalised. That’s a kick in the nuts as I had multiple assurances this would not be the case. Learnings: Don’t trust your bank (or the Government)….. Clearly they are making it up as they go along and they don’t really care about the consequences for people further down the food-chain. As long as they’re alright! So, I’m spending most of my hours scouring the internet for suitable jobs, updating my cv, completing applications, but hearing nothing back. It’s a challenge to stay positive.
