Job Situation

Well I still haven't got a job and it's been almost exactly a year now. I never would have thought I would have been unemployed for so long at the start of this.

Up until now I have been fairly chilled about not working obviously having the odd moment of fear now and again but not all the time. Now however it's starting to be so that the fear is always sort of there in the background.

I think I might be in a vicious circle at the moment, no one now wants to give me a job because I've been out of work for so long and it looks like I'm a bit of a slacker. I sent out another application this morning and I actually wrote a little extra in the email saying how keen I was to get back into a job etc, I wasn't sure it didn't sound a bit drippy but then I'm not generally getting any reply's anyway so I thought it was worth a go.

I think being at home so much is just giving me extra time to eat my way through everything in the fridge as well!


  1. Keep a positive attitude, Ava! You will get a job...I know it is hard and the world economy has changed...but make yourself stand out! Also, put a big sign on your fridge...NO, PIGGY! I did that once and not only did it make me laugh, I thought twice about reaching in there...

  2. lol I love that idea Momma, that cheered me up and made me smile :-) I hope I think of that everytime I go near the fridge now! xx
