Trying not to freak out!

In one week I will be unemployed.

The job market has become very employer driven over here. Much like everywhere else I am guessing. I am trying not to freak out. Just plugging away, applying for jobs. Talking to recruitment agencies. 

And I am trying not to get pissed off when UK ministers talk about limiting foreign workers in the country. I pay taxes and all I get is access to the NHS. Don't get the dole. Don't get housing relief. Nothing. From where I stand, people like me are supporting the public services in this country by contributing but taking nothing. 

But enough of the political rant.

On the positive, being unemployed will leave me a lot of time to knit. Take in the sights. and most importantly knit!!

But what I am asking all my lovely friends to do is send me some good vibes. Some luck. some positive energy that will help me land a new job. And maybe finish some of my WIPs!!

To all my friends, Love, Hugs and all things knitterly. ps The flowers are for you!

oh that is good reason for a freak out. After I got over the shock of the idea of that much knitting time, I then saw reason and realised you are facing a bit of a scary prospect. Keep us posted!
