I’d like to get hold of any of the authors of the ‘you can live on £1 a day’ articles and shake them warmly by the throat.
Because you can’t.
I’ve sold my motorbike; it was collected yesterday.
I’m still applying for jobs (currently about 30-40 per day), but there isn’t too much out there and, with over 600 applicants per job, employers are focussing on the minutest detail in CVs before they even draw up an interview list. Making it on to the interview list is a feat in itself.
I’ve widened my field of jobsearching; I’m now applying for jobs internationally as well as nationally. Today, so far, includes applications for posts in Belgium, France, and Denmark.
In food news, in terms of quantities, I’m eating less, but I’m not eating fewer meals – and no, I don’t understand this either – yet I’m not dropping any weight.
That’s just unjust (IYSWIM).
Amusingly, I’ve been ferreting about in the depthiest depths of the freezer, and have discovered – and started eating – things that were obviously installed by my ex-wife (that large bag of frozen brussels sprouts hasn’t seen the light of day in at least three years!).
All in all I continue to be upbeat, that good things are just around the corner.
I have no evidence to support this theory, but it’s my theory and I’m sticking to it.
