Right, long story, short version...
For the last 2 and a bit years, Ive been working as a 'casual' woeker for a local family run printers. I got called in as and when they had work, which was fine for the first 18 months, when I was in pretty much every day, but these last few months have been pap, and the work has been going to the 'in house' workers (read as family members of the owners.) So basically, Ive not been able to earn over £450ish a month, which trust me, with three kids and the amount of animals I have, really doesn' t go far
Anyway, Ive been hanging on and hanging on, in the hope that they get work in for me (I like the job, and have known the family for years), its got to the stage where I only earnt £143 last month, so it was decision time.
While I was pregnant, I did some dog walking for a kennels about 5 miles away from where I live, again, Ive known the owners of the place for years, and get on with them well. I decided maybe they would like a visit from me today, as I haven't seen them for a few months, and I walked out with a new 30 hr a week job lol
Its going to be basically kennel work (walking, grooming, cleaning out the runs etc) but when the kennels quieten down as the holiday season drops, then I will be looking after their horses as well, which is brilliant, as hopefully I might actually lose my baby belly after having Hope . Ive worked outdoors for most of my working life, so yes, I know we are coming into the shitty weather, but its where Im happiest. I couldn't be stuck in an office all day, it would drive me nuts.
So things really are looking up for me at last, and in theory my life should't be such a struggle financially from now on
