Decisions Have Been Made!!!

This morning I received a letter from work saying that my official leaving date is next Friday! That means I have 8 days then I'm officially unemployed! This will be the first time in 13 years that I will not have a job and to be honest its scares the shit out of me!!

However I have decided to stop worrying myself as I'm making myself ill! I'm not sleeping and I'm getting stress headaches!

I won't be unemployed I will be a Stay at home mummy! I will keep looking for part time work (though to be honest its slim pickings at the mo), I have applied for some jobs just waiting to hear back.

Ideally I would like to be a WAHM and I'm working on some projects including making things from home and plan to have some stock for Christmas to sell (I'm hoping I'm being realistic). Once I have some things made I will show you all and probably send a few things out to be tested!

OH has said that he will help more with BG especially when he is off so I can work on things

I have also decided that I will only do reviews once a month I don't want to take away from what this blog is really about, mine and BG's journey!

Money will be tight but that's fine I have been skint before I know how to budget, Aldi and Lidl are my new best friends!!! Lol

On a happier note BG has started to call me mum!!! She's not just saying its randomly!!! So her first official word is mum!!! Good girl BG

Also her toothy pegs have finally come through!!! Well at the bottom just got the rest of the to go!

Ok off to plan, look for a job and have loads of snuggles with my baby!!



  1. You will feel better now that decisions have been made. I am sure you will be a great WAHM and am looking forward to seeing your creations. How fab for you, that she is calling you mum!

  2. Oh my, I'm so sorry you lost your job. I just spoke with a woman working at the market who told me she lost her day job. I went through leaving a job three years ago but I made the decision because I wanted to be a WAHM, so now I only work outside the home part-time. It might be difficult to see now but this may turn out to be a wonderful opportunity for you to take stock, sit back and think about what it is you really want to do with your life and find a new calling. (Sorry to get all Oprah on you.)

    I just found you on British Mummy Bloggers. Your blog is lovely.

  3. Oh, that is so lovely, her first word being Mum. Just think, if you do end up staying at home you will get to experience all of BG's firsts.

  4. Awwwwww, that's a bit naff isn't it about the job, but then again, think of the positives, and I hear that Aldi is the new cool place in town to be seen. I'm going part time from next week so me and Aldi will be the very best of friends.

    And after reading your last few blog posts I've just remembered about a million things I haven't done. Whoops. You could always become my own personal reminder service :-)

  5. well being a stay at home mom for now will be a great thing for you and your child. As for will come soon, I hope..Just take this time to get organized and figure out your next step. Good LUCK...

  6. sorry about the job but as they say, when one door closes another opens!! and i think it has done for you! great news on the first word being mum, make sure you take care of yourself and get some rest xxxx

  7. Hello 'mum'!
    Bad news about the job. My employment was terminated quite recently too.
    Good luck with your WAHM project. You know you've got a ready made audience in the blogging and Twitter worlds for whatever you make x

  8. Good Luck!
    My little man is only three months old - and technically I don't have to tell my boss whether I'm going back or not until the new year, but I already know I don't want to!!
    Financially, I don't know if my dream will pan out, but I've got everything crossed!

    Hope everything goes brilliantly for you as a stay at home mummy - best job ever :D

  9. Good luck being a WAHM. I'm lucky that I can be part time SAHM and part time worker, although my job future is looking a bit ropey.
    You'll do well, looking forward to the new projects x

  10. Thank you everyone for all the knid words and engouragement, its all of you that helped make my decisions easy! I never found a group of people so supportive before its lovely x x

  11. Good luck. Being a WAHM is great, though, so hope you can get that to work out for you. So sweet that her first word is Mum!

  12. Good luck with your new projects. I'm a WAHM and I love it (best of both worlds).
