Just found out I'm being laid off, 2 weeks into a 6 month contract. Govt has cancelled the Project. So a period of uncertainty and financial squeaky bum time. Happy xmas!

Been for a few pints to numb the pain. I know things are likely to be ok come Jan, but it doesn't half feel uncomfortable now. I've worked solidly for the last 13 years (since leaving education) without a break. Now all of a sudden I feel guilty and like a failure - I don't know why. Should be ok until end of Jan, but I hate the uncertainty.

I can't wait to see my beloved 12 year old daughter tomorrow - a real pick me up! Might have to break it to her that my xmas pressies will be a bit more Aldi and a bit less M&S this year.

Does it show that I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself? Don't mean to - but today was supposed to be the start of a deserved and much needed Xmas break. BAH!!!!!

What can I do tonight to pick myself up and remind myself how lucky I really am? It shouldn't be so hard. I know I should be grateful for the health of my loved ones and all that. Maybe I'll have a Chinese takeaway!

Not the best xmas present ever! I'm sure your daughter will love whatever you find for her, it's not where and how much it cost that are important. I'm sure she'll understand.
Enjoy your takeaway. I'm just off to the chippy myself. And keep positive.

I guess I'm lucky in that I only (only?!?have my mortgage as my only major overhead. Once that is covered, my sprog lives with my ex and I know she will always be ok. So, as long as my situation only affects me and me alone, It can never be so bad.
