Honest, I am still here, just about. For the past two weeks I have been acting as an unpaid labourer on my husbands building site. I hasten to add that this isnt through choice, but as there is the most ridiculous deadline for a block of flats and there are people who are desperate to be able to move in before their mortgage offers expire AND the company he works for refuse to bring in any additional staff and are actually making more and more people redundant, I offered to help because 1. I would hate to be in the position where I was worried sick that my mortgage offer would expire and there is no guarantee of another one right now, and 2. Himself had a heart attack last Xmas and I cant bear to see him as stressed as he is regarding this build.
It still looks as though he may be out of a job after this build finishes in the middle of December but we still have to wait and see. Apparently the company have said this morning that there are another 100 jobs to go in this region at Xmas, but we don't know yet what mix of admin, technical and site staff it will be.
I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Back Soon. Babs
