After a three hour meeting today discussing the finalisation of a number of contracts, I was asked to stay behind and my director advised me that as of two weeks time, I would be made redundant unless we picked up some more civils work.
To say I am gutted would be an understatement and as of yet, I have chosen not to tell my wife. We are and my wife in particular too stressed out as it is.
Luckily, I am currently negotiating with another Company for a regional head position but based in Luton – only 80 miles down the M1 each day!
Time will tell as I revamp my CV and ring back a number of the agencies that have over the last 12 months been pestering me.
We have just come back from a pleasant evening with friends where we watched the Wales France game and had a few bottles of wine and snacks etc. Difficult to keep focused on the conversation given my current news.
Selfish as it seems I need my Emma time more than ever as I address the problem I may now face. The good news is that I have booked in and paid for my hotel on the 11th to allow me to attend the Northern Angels evening meal and have also picked up a new red dress from EBay to fit into the themed night at Manchester Concord. I already have the shoes and a matching handbag.
I am also booked into the Atrium with a friend for the next Come Dancing evening organised by Lisa this time on a Saturday evening in early April. This will probably be the last outing for a while if I become unemployed so I will have to make the most of it.
Anyway, enough of the doom and gloom, it's past midnight and I’m away to bed. Let’s see what next week brings.
