The Fight Goes On

I have to say that I've certainly experienced a roller coaster of emotions these past few days. From the grief of losing my job to the frustration and sheer anger with a person I thought of as a friend, through to the disappointment at finding myself in the same boat I tried for so hard and for so long to get out of.

Here's a Stat For You

In the eight weeks before the shop went under I applied for tons of jobs through Indeed. I didn't keep a written record because I was still employed at the time and didn't need to keep one for the DWP.

It's Over

So I was greeted with this when I turned up for work today.

It would be laughable if it wasn't so tragic.

I'm a Man! I Do Man Things!

When I was much younger I was often teased about my name, mainly because they thought that Julian was a girl's name.

But despite my christian name's somewhat noble origins, there are still some people who think I'm actually a woman.

I'd Really Love To Go To Town On Someone

There's a part of me that would really like to go to town on someone, but it probably wouldn't do any good. After all, she's kicked me off the page I used to help her run and blocked me on Facebook. She's probably blocked my phone as well.

Maybe I'll rant and rave and tell all when that shop door is closed and locked for the final time.

So I'm Looking For A Job Again.....

It was about this time two years ago that someone saw my posts about being unemployed and offered me a job. Sadly circumstances beyond my control mean that this job is coming to an end sooner or later.

Which is why I'm putting this post here, because having found a job through social media once there's a chance it can happen again.

"Are You Closing?"

You're probably wondering what this photo is all about. It's simple. Two weeks ago the "to let" sign went up at Claws 'N' Paws, the place where I've worked for the past two years.

Since then I've been asked countless times "are you closing?"

Want an alternative to the Eurovision Song Contest? Here's a few songs from around Europe, together with a token Aussie act. No Brits though. We are leaving the EU after all!
