I was kind of taken by surprise, well, not kind off… I was really taken by surprise.

I found myself being told that I had to be let go by my employer. Now I want to be clear, I have absolutely no “ill will” for my employer. I love and respect them very much.

It was a case of numbers and you folks who’ve been self-employed or run businesses know that if the numbers don’t match up, then things can’t continue the way they’re going…. something has to change.

So just before Christmas I found myself without work. Thankfully I had my daughter’s Christmas gifts bought and paid for.
