oh deer

hello cupcake
.
I am now officially on the scrapheap. Yes i have been made redundant today. Part of me is relieved it's all over, part of me is still stunned, and the rest is just wondering what the hell's going to become of me. Over 14 years i've been working there.... today is the first day of the rest of my life (always loved that saying, and now it's true)
.
Back to inspiration posts soon i promise :)

That sucks - but it was probably the 'not knowing' that was worse.
It's great you're thinking so positively. This is your transitional period on the road to greatness!

you give them 14 years and now this, I'm sure it's just the kick you needed for greater things.

It's horrid, I know, but look on the positive side, you can now get something you enjoy and maybe even set up that little side line?

God moves in mysterious ways and this will be a wonder you perform.

I have every faith in you my dear. It will all be better than ok.

My lovely Biba, I'm so sorry to hear this! 14 years is a very long time. The "next thing" will surely be great, even if the interim period is difficult. You have a great eye for design. Perhaps dive back into your eBay business or start an Etsy business?

So sorry, Biba...

One of my favourite sayings is "Leap and the net will follow".

Take the chance to do something wonderful...xx

Oh poo - I think even if you know it is coming it is still a shock. My fingers are crossed that you find something new soon.

but keep positive, and see it as that opportunity to do something you've always wanted to do. You have an amazing eye for style and design, and inspire me (for one!) every time I visit your blog! you will be fine.

Maybe it´s sad to leave, but there is also a chance to start something new. Just the best for you and the first step on the new path towards a new era.

I've been at my work for 10 years and it feels like a lifetime. I am getting to comfortable, behaving like i am at home. In a way it would be a relief to be forced to leave and on the other hand i would be really hurt and scared. Maybe this is an opportunity for you. Maybe you'll look back at this moment and think: Thank God! I think so! You seem so talanted and full of resources. Go get them!!
