New Job

After 3 weeks 'Garden Leave' I will me made redundant at the end of this weekend. 7.5 years working for Convergys will be over then and it feels strange. I moved to the UK for this job and I loved every minute of it but even the best things have to come to an end sometime.

Last Day with some of the Tech Guys

I spend my time on 'garden leave' with my dogs and working around the house and garden. I harvested the first peas and beans and they have been so yummy. On my first day off I had an interview for a Team Manager position and a day later I got confirmation that I got the job. That meant I was able to enjoy my time off without hassle of finding a new job or worrying. I went out 2x with my mates from work and had a great time on both occasions. Now I am looking forward to start my new job next week. I really don't like being off and not do anything, that so just not me. It still feels strange though but the new job is way closer to home and that will reduce transport time by a good 45 minutes each way, so am pleased.

Yesterday was my last day at work, as I am facing redundancies, well officially I am part of TUPE and am moving to a different company but only until 27th of June. The work is transfering to South Wales and I don't wish to relocate and with both dogs it would be a task of it's own anyway as I am supposed to be in a hotel for the first 4 weeks. So I am on 'Garden Leave' for the next 3 weeks and hopefully able to enjoy some sun and do work around the house.
It's very, very strange feeling. I have worked in the company for 7 years 5 month and 26 days and leaving yesterday was just so hard. I made so many great friends not just in Newcastle but all over the world and leaving everyone behind was tough. I was a crying wreck more less all day.

I have nothing new lined up yet but go an interview on Monday,so fingers crossed. Sometimes we have to be forced into change to realzie that something better might just be around the corner and I hope that this turns out to be one of those instances
