What A Week....A Little Moan!!!

I don't normally post when I haven't any cards to show but this week has been such a huge rollercoaster ride of emotions for me and I haven't had a lot of inspiration for making cards.
I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue on Monday which I knew in the back of my mind was causing the problems I was having...soooo tired, foggy brain etc etc. Tuesday we buried my grandad and then come Thursday I receive a redundancy notice from my work saying they are considering making my position of manager redundant due to a huge downturn in work!!!!
I'm not stupid and know where this is all coming from....anything to do with being ill???!!!!
Anyway soon I will be unemployed, I have worked there 8 years so at least will have a bit of money to keep me going while I get back on my feet and find another job.
Steve has suggested we take a trip to Gran Canaria...that made me smile :-)
In the mist of all the shock and upset at least there is light at the end of the tunnel and I will have more time to craft...just need to find my inspiration...anyone seen it (or should I be saying mojo???!!!!)
I am expected to continue to work until a final decision is made and in the meantime have talks about how I think I can be employed elsewhere in the company, avoid redundancy etc etc...well I am sorry but I am not fighting for my job and feel that once it has come to this the decision has already been made....they are just going through the motions.
I want to call them every name under the sun...up until this point they have been very good to me while I have been ill and I do know they can't carry me forever but talk about kicking me when I am down.
Well I hope I haven't depressed you too much and am sorry this post is all bad news (apart from more crafting time!!)
I hope to be back very shortly with some of my creations and challenge entries.
Bye for now

Hi Emma, i'm so sorry about your job. Someone told me this long time ago and always pass it along... "God, never gives us anything that we can't handle". Hope you find some time to craft :)

Sorry to hear about your job Emma....it's hard enough these days without being ill as well. Perhaps this will be a new turning in your life...take your time before making any decisions.
Happy crafting!!

Take care

Cheer up, sounds like you had a bad week. Hope you feel better soon. Sounds like you've got the fighting spirit by deciding that you're leaving anyway. Been in that situation, not good but a holiday could be just what doctor ordered. Keep your chin up. Take care xx
