It’s not been great recently, I won’t lie. I’m done, I’ve had enough and I want out. Except I’ve no where really to go. I can’t stand Him Indoors telling me I’m useless, that I’m lazy and milking an “illness” and should get a job… in retail no less. He keeps pointing out shop work : you know, what therapist and doctors and an independent occupational health adviser agree I’m not suited for. Retail nearly saw me leap from a window. Since not “working” I’ve got in to blogging, trying to blog for good, not just personal rants or reviews. I’ve helped charities, and supported others in the “online community”. To him they are strangers, people that don’t matter. To me they are my only friends. I need them, and I hope it’s a two-way friendship that they like me back.
I need work, whilst I don’t think I can hold a normal job at the moment, the classic 9-5 is not right for me I do need some sort of income, sooo.. Here goes.. Typing away…. I have been out of work since October with depression and mental health. This in no way stops me writing or blogging but definitely impacts on my daily life, in particular speaking to people in person is very hard for me and leaving my house alone. Yesterday my partner also got bad employment news. We thought he was lined up to be made redundant, which wouldn’t have been great news, but there would have been a redundancy payout by the company so that would have actually been OK. What his bosses have done instead, is to demote him, including a pay cut as his job is “no longer needed”, and to keep his notice […]
Just look at Twitter tonight. Check out #MatildaMae and see the massive love and respect when one of “our own” suffers a loss. Here is an extremely moving tribute video by Jennie This is so sad, her cute cheeky little smile. Such a sweet girl, you will cry. Everywhere I look I’m seeing this avatar, people that know Jennie’s story and people that are just learning of it tonight. The reason we are all doing this? To support a family in a very sad time in their life. Tomorrow Jennie, her husband David and their twins lay MM to rest. It’s her funeral, a life suddenly taken, without warning. It’s heart-breaking, and unfair to be honest. It touched so many parents, with many of us hugging their mini-me’s more often since reading the tragic news. So many of us, all desperate to help them, wanting to change things for this […]
Whilst sat awake tonight an idea came to me #BlogTag Idea! I figured that a lot of other bloggers like getting a new audience, new readers. I know I like stumbling across blogs I’ve not seen before, and I also love it when other bloggers tweet links to my blog or share on G+ or other kind things like that. Well what if on a Wednesday evening we have a little twitter gathering. You tweet out the URL of a blog or two you like and @tag the blog owner and hash it #BlogTag – for example “have a peek at mummysrandomblog.blogspot.co.uk by @me #BlogTag because I like it / interesting posts / great reviews”Something like this, something thats your opinion though not just borrowing that persons blog bio.If someone #BlogTag’s you please tag them back in your own words. Whilst you are there why not pop a comment on […]
