I am now officially unemployed! Last week after being on "special leave" from work for the last 5 weeks, the "issues" were resolved. I left.
After weeks of counselling, visits to doctors, stress leave from work, I left.
I am totally amazed at how much difference a change of staff can make in the work place. The people you work with, can make your work place an enjoyable place to be, or they can make it very unpleasant!
Now I face a whole new range of issues, what do I do next? Where do I go from here?
I was employed as a Community Services Officer, I spent a lot of time dealing with the community, but I also published a community newspaper. I took the photos, wrote the articles, did the editing, sold advertising and did all the design work. Work of this nature is pretty thin on the ground.
I think I will designate the month of Jan to preparing a CV. Then hit the "streets" beginning of Feb. At least then I won't have to compete with all the university students!
Wish me luck!
Here is a couple of pics of the quilt I have been working on. It is all ready for quilting now. What do you think? It is made using New Zealand fabrics.
Hope you've all had a great weekend!
