So…. I haven’t posted for a while. It’s been a change in my circumstances, which I’m still processing. It’s like having a prison door being opened and being wary about venturing out side again.
On Monday 1st December 2014, I started a new temporary job.
On Friday 29th November 2014, I was offered a full time permanent role, at the same organization, but at a different site. I’m waiting for a start date, having to go through yet another THREE months of waiting for the same references, proofs of employment and blood tests.
I got my first pay packet in 15 months on 18th December 2014.
I’m by no means out of the woods.
I’m still having problems with a roof over my head. The ex and the judge screwed me out of £10k off the house price. The ex was hiding behind his solicitors skirts and couldn’t look me in the eye. He still isn’t communicating. Mind you neither is my conveyancer; only the estate agents are gloating about the situation as the vultures of the buyers circle closer and closer. Ironically, the hours I work are causing problems even viewing suitable properties – out at 7 AM and back at 6PM, and in bed by 11PM to start the whole process again. (What I wouldn’t give to not home home and go out in the dark and NOT work in a room without windows). Most of the robbin’ bastard agents don’t do weekend viewings and I don’t want to waste annual leave.
As for rental properties, there are some NASTY places out there. Being surrounded by barbed wire isn’t a big turn on.
Anyway more about my adventures in the rental market in further posts.
Happy New Year to my readers and thank you for your support
