I have not had much time to sit and think about my blog lately … this “unemployed” lark is taking up all my time!

In reality preparing for my future is very time consuming … I have designed and ordered business cards … removed the old sign writing and glue from my car (thanks Julia for coming to visit and helping!) … set up a new blog (nothing posted it on yet!) and set up LinkedIn and Twitter accounts so that I can hit the ground running once I have completed my Celebrant course in Glasgow at the end of August.

I have been to the job centre to sign on … I have a meeting arranged with Business Gateway and I have been looking up information on being a sole trader.

Everything is lovely and busy… my  head is exhausted but some lovely friends have popped round to help and to chill with me, so all is good.

There is a lot on the horizon for me at the moment .. and I’m loving every second of it.  I know that, financially, the next few months are going to be tough, that is ok.   I will survive no matter what, and … shock on shock… I give up smoking next week, with the help of the pharmacist.  I simply cannot afford to smoke, I cannot afford to buy takeaways … and this is all GOOD news, the temptation will be taken away from me and that is ok.

I feel good.  I feel free.
