Bad endings and new beginnings

I have indeed been quiet for some time(Thank you Dotty Red for your concern) and  have not felt able to post any words which would come across as anything but very self pitying and full of rancour.I have been through a fairly hideous time over the past few months,uncertainty,severe stress,disappointment,anger,unashamed bitterness and betrayal and fully in the picture as to who I can count on as friends.
However,what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and thankfully my situation is not life threatening and nothing that isn't being experienced by thousands of people all around the world.I find myself middle-aged, unemployed ,no longer a teacher,  a stone lighter and now very confused by the new blogger set up which I am finding very unfriendly.
So pity party over I have sought solace in words borrowed from Pinterest (thank you Cocoa Rose)and take comfort that there are so many lovely bloggers who do care and who are always so sweetly supportive and kind.Thank you for being there and tolerating my hugely self- centred mini meltdown.I am over it now and very scared but looking forward to new opportunities which will be of my own making.

                                                          Don't you just love words?











I will make a start by being a much better blogger and try to post more regularly.

You've been very brave to have got all that "off your chest" and I bet you feel loads better for it. Every cloud has a silver lining, keep smiling, Lucey xxx

Sorry you have been on such a low, have been there myself at times and it is a very good time to assess who your true friends are and to filter out the negatives that are holding you back in life. Hope you are soon able to move on and feel less emotionally battered. Betty

Oh my such a rubbish time... my heart goes out to you. This situation our country is in at the moment is tearing families apart. I love the Dear Karma words... Take care and keep strong.

I was made redundant from my teaching job. . . . . . . . and although it was all of the things that you described. A few years down the line now, it is the best thing that ever happened to me . . . . . . it will be so for you too.

We have had an horrendous time in our household over the past 8 months, but thankfully at last, I think things will improve. But when you are put into a difficult situation it also affects those around you and makes life very difficult. Keep strong and be positive and believe that things will get better. All the sentiments on your pinterest boards are so true. Good Luck. X

Thank-you for the comment. I myself am a primary teacher and I know how it is more a 'way of life' than a job so it must feel very strange that you will no longer be doing it.
Is the pom pom trim new to your shop!? I've never seen any in there before!
