    Six months ago, I was taken on from my freelance position to cover maternity leave. This week, I've been told I won't be kept on - but the girl who was brought in on six months contract to cover my freelance position will :cry: Nothing to do with how good or not I am, just circumstances that have changed in the company. Now, for the first time in 21 years, after numerous poachings and promotions, I'm gonna be unemployed. What's worse, it just feels unfair.

    So I've had beer, cocktails, wine and pizza. A third of a medium one. Oh, and crisps to nibble on at the bar. Syns galore.

    WI tomorrow. For the first time, I don't even care if I've lost, gained, or STS. I just feel so down.

    Thanks everyone. Just done a yoga session so feeling more chilled. I'm luckier than most, I have options. But pizza is no longer going to be one of them!

    How horrible for you. I was paid off last April and devistated as it came out of the blue. I had not been out of work before apart from having the kids so it was strange for me but I went and signed on as I had a right to claim as I had paid my contributions and searched for something else and it was a struggle not getting interviews and then having interview only to get a thanks but no thanks then in Aug I got offered 3 jobs at same place and I took the one I wanted and started in Sept and love it. Hope things pan out for you and well done on not having the pizza. You can do it, stay positive and you go for it and you will find something. Reach for the stars and you will shine xx
