I’m Positive


Hello! Again apologies for being so slow to update but its been a busy time.

If you follow me on Twitter you will see that I quit the job. The relief was huge and has lasted. It all came to a head last Thursday. There was only so much bitching, pettiness and bad management I could take.  I was sick of working 6 days with no notice, of not getting a break and of being treated like crap.  In the end I was very calm about it, I didnt shout or make a scene but I stated my grievances and asked that my resignation be accepted immediately- then I skipped down the street. I’m not going to write down everything that lead up to it cos I wouldn’t make a lot of sense to anyone else but me but trust me, it was bad.

So now I’m jobless again but I am able to sleep and dont have that awful feeling in the pit of my stomach every morning when I wake up. Money wise I’d gotten some tax back the week before and I had been putting some money aside in case of this anyway. I should be hearing about an interview date later this morning and I’ve been in touch with some more agencies so I’m not too worried. In fact I’m less worried than I was when I was made redundant in February. I just have a good feeling about things. I know I did the right thing because I had a dream the other night that I had to go back and the terror that I felt at that thought was far worse than not having a job!

Apart from that Weight Watchers in going well. I’m keeping withing my allocated points and exercising. I’m off to Killarney next weekend with the girls for 2 of their 30th’s and looking forward to that. I just need to find something nice to wear.

It feels so much better being positive about things right now. A lot less draining.


I’m Grateful…..Really


Reading over my most recent posts and Tweets they’ve all been pretty whiney so I’ve decided to “count my blessings” in the hope that being positive will change my luck.*

  • I have a great family who love me.
  • I have some wonderful friends but 4 in particular who I know would always be there for me.
  • Through blogging and Twitter I’ve also made some ace friends who have gone through some of the same things I have and think the same way I do.
  • I’m healthy.
  • I’m getting happier with my body and developing a better attitude towards food.
  • I’m able to handle my feelings and emotions in a much better way than I used to, I’ve been through some of the worst times in my life and come out the other side, this has made me stronger.
  • I’m pretty intelligent (I think)
  • I have good skin and teeth!
  • I am debt free.
  • Even though I live at home I have total freedom and can save some money for my deposit.
  • I have a car and can drive anywhere I want, whenever I want.
  • My current work situation is only temporary!!!!!!!!
  • I’m a good person.
  • I live in a nice place, near the sea.

*Normal moaning will resume shortly…….!

Quick Catch Up.

Been a bit lax with the blog lately so apologies. Well, had my birthday- 28 now. I had a lovely day and a great night out on Saturday with some newer but really good mates. Well I say night out, we started at 2pm and I rolled home at 3am. I was remarkably not hungover on Sunday (which when you think of it is slightly worrying)

I got some lovely presents, my Dad picked out a fab necklace for me (which I would have picked myself so that was ace) and the usual Dad present- money. My brother got me a Wii- which I wasn’t expecting at all, we dont normally go for big presents for birthdays but I was a thank you for a few other bits as well. Thanks P.

My friends must reckon I pong as I got plenty of perfume- I have quite the collection now, I need to get through them before they go off. I dont have one signature scent- I like to vary and with the collection I have now I could have a different smell for every occassion. I must take a picture when I think of it. Apart from that I’m still keeping up with the Couch to 5K programme at the gym, I’m on week 4 now so far so good. I also got My Fitness Coach for the Wii and it rocks. My diet went on the backburner what with my birthday and it was my Dads this week so I couldn’t not eat the cake (that would have been rude!!) but I’m back on track now.

I’m expecting to get a call about the new job next week regarding starting dates etc. Im still looking for something else but, yeah it will tide me over for now. I actually came across a job on recruit Ireland today that looked perfect and belonged to an agency that I’m registered with but when I rang them about it they were clueless, I’m going to try again tomorrow, I dont want to let it pass me by without even going for it.

I’ve a few other bits to tell you but my computer is on a bit of go slow tonight so I’ll have to leave it at that for now.

Sunshine Smiles

I’m normally much more of a winter person but I have to say it’s great to see the sun shining. I went for a walk earlier and everyone seemed to be smiling and in a good mood. When the weather is like this I realise how lucky I am to live by the sea and as much as some days I’d love to be somewhere else this will do pretty nicely for now!

When I was walking this song came on my Ipod, it’s a real summer song and one of my “makes me smile” songs. It always makes me want to have a bop around (which may cause some strange glances if you’re outside, oh well, who cares!)
