Default Who has lost their jobs?

You know that my DH has and so has Mrs Haps DH and DeWarrior. Anyone else in the same situation? This Monday morning coming I am trying to organise a networking group where we can meet up and share our experiences, exchange CV's and generally offer support to each other through this tough time. My husband and I will be at the Lakes Club 10 am Monday morning, if anyone wants to come along they are more than welcome.

Stay postive

everyone I have heard off is at home now, just like we are but waiting for end of term benefits. There is also another meeting down at City Hospital for those who can't make the morning one. This has been organised by Helping Hands.

it is open to anyone who feels they need to talk things through and get some advice. Hopefully I will have Meow with me I am no expert but I have learnt about the labour laws etc in the last couple of weeks. Another person I would love to attend would be Alen but I think he is probably working. I can't do it this Saturday as I am doing my relocation work. If this one is well attended then we can always organise another one for the following Saturday.

And before anyone says anything I am not going to flog anything! I'll be there if anyone wants to talk about finances, budgeting, reducing outgoings etc.

and supporting me!!! Spread the word everyone, there are alot of people being affected by this, they need to know they are not alone. If a cup of coffee and a sympathetic ear can lift someones spirits then I say why not? I know that my friends are the ones who have got me through the last couple of weeks.
