I’VE GOT A JOB!!!!
It’s only 6 hours per week, but there may be the possibility of more if I’m needed, but I HAVE A JOB!!!! After being unemployed for going on for 3 months, I can’t tell you how happy I am at this news, plus, as it’s so few hours, I feel it is totally managable, and will be of great benefit to improving my health overall.
Plus I’ll be able to feed myself and the girls!
After a wonderful weekend at the Tenbury Music Festival (where I was papped!!!), this is just the perfect start to the week!
This news (ironically) came at a very interesting time.
Last night I was browsing the interwebs and I came across an article about Go Fund Me campaigns.
Maybe first I need to give you a bit of backgroud before I move on to the request…
When I was a lot younger – 14/15 – I was having a really awful time at school, being bullied relentlessly both in and out of school. I took to the internet (it was dial up at the time…!!), and met a group of people with similar interests to my own. One of those people was a wonderful lady who came from Sweden. We met at a group meeting from the webchat we used, and she came to stay with me in Yorkshire for a few days. As happens, we lost touch at some point, but I came across her LinkedIn profile some years later and got back in touch. We keep in touch regularly now, thanks to the wonder of Facebook.
So, we’ve had an idea that we’ve been throwing around for a while, but the time never seems to have been right.
My friend has suggested that I move to Sweden, and start afresh. The time couldnt be more right. I have no permanent home (although a caravan is a permanent home of sorts, it’s not actually ‘permanent’ permanent), no friends in the area, and, although I had my good news today, I don’t have a career here. So why not?
So I started a Go Fund Me campaign.
That’s what I was doing when I got the call about the job.
As I have now got a job, and money I can put towards my fund myself, I will, of course.
I need to get passports for the girls, which can cost up to £200 each. I’ll need money to live and pay rent until I get a job (I am already sending my CV to companies out there), and of course I’ll need a plane ticket.
I’ve decided that anything over my target will go to the mental Health charity Sane, as well as anything left after I get a job.
Sane have helped me through one of the worst periods of depression I have experienced since I was diagnosed so many years ago. They do amazing work, and I want them to continue helping people in the way they have helped me. I can honestly say that their TextCare service has been one of the things to have kept me going this past few months. Please take a look at their website to see the amazing work they do.
This is my chance at a brand new start, and I’ll be very honest, asking for help is not something I do easily, but I here am asking for your help.
So, my request; please, at the very least, share my funding page – https://www.gofundme.com/2acc9xw
I don’t expect anyone to donate, but I’m seeing it as a way of at least trying, and if it doesn’t work, what have I lost?
Thank you so much
