Ok guys I recently said I was getting a fiesta metal. The docs were signed all was needed was a copy of my license then I was to collect the car. But I was given the news that I'm now unemployed as I was made redundant so I'm having to stick with the focus so I'm trying to keep my job hunting or I will loose the focus too.

Have something to contribute?

Hi, good luck mate, having been in the situation of having my hours cut from one school then being made redundant at another I know how you feel. Fortuanately for me things worked out ok so I really do hope they will also for you..

It's a great feeling when you get a job, even if only out of work for a short period.

It can seem daunting if getting back to it after a longer period.

I have only ever been out of work for 2 years and that was because I was getting over surgery for a broken back, my wife was off work for 6 years after cancer surgery and treatments pretty much made her housebound, she's been back in employment for 4 years now and is working like a loony and tucking away as many shifts as she can.

I may not always like being in work but conversely don't think I could stand being out of work again, two years of daytime TV and wasted time royally did my head in (Teletubbies and Trisha overdose ;))

Looks like you haven't heard of Jeremy Kyle and in total I only lost a day's work but my new job gets me 5 days more hols a year, almost a £1 an hour more and I'm working 9hrs 5 days a week, with some Saturday work and also been told I can get parts for myself cheaper than the garages get them :-) and also heard get 2 or 3 bonuses a year if we do well

Very nice indeed, so a bit of a result and a favour when your last company ditched you.

 

Jeremy Kyle? that a hole just asks to be smacked, pure bear baiting TV if ever i saw it.
