I have been working for two weeks today – is this some kind of anniversary?
And today was payday.
I can’t even begin to describe how it feels to have some money in my bank account after having no income since the end of January.
Yes, it hasn’t been easy.
I have had to sell a lot of tech, sell my car, sell my motorbike. And my horse was sold – without my permission – by the livery yard, where he had lived for almost six years.
So no, it hasn’t been easy.
But I could not have survived without the support of one friend in particular.
Despite not being in a position to help, despite going through massive upheaval and domestic trauma herself, she has gone out of her way to keep me going.
Three times, in recent months, enormous amounts of internet shopping has arrived at the house.
Three times this lovely friend has generously spent significant amounts of money she could ill-afford, to feed a distant person.
I don’t know how I’m going to repay this friend’s kindness.
But I am going to try.
No matter how long it will take me.
