Hardest thing to give up……..
At the beginning of this journey I stated that the hardest thing to give up was a permanent full-time job. Having always had permanent full-time work since I was 17 the thought of giving this up, particularly as I liked my job, to do something that I had no idea if I would like was hard.
As it turned out fate stepped in. Eight months before our launch date we had a change of Director in our office and from then on my job changed so “liking” my job was no longer part of my description. Six months before our launch date we were given notice of redundancy – the office in Leamington Spa was being closed and all functions moved to head office in Maidenhead.
Someone asked me why giving up my job was the hardest thing and not giving up my friends and family. Easy answer is that I haven’t given up my friends and family. They are still there. I miss my friends and family more than anything else. It’s hard not being a short car journey away or being able to drop over on a whim. To go to Mum’s virtually every lunch time, knit & natter (well crochet) with Anni, eat Chinese with Maria, share a bottle with Philippa and have a gossip with Rachel but they are still there. The only issue we have now is distance.
So to be clear to all my friends and family; I miss you all and have not given any of you up.
PS: don’t have pics of everyone.
