Uncertainty and Lovely Surprises....




On the day I found out that my Darling Mr.Poppins faces redundancy yet again, we have been through this twice before in only a few months, a special surprise from the lovely MelMel came through the door. She knew I was feeling somewhat gloomy and wanted to send me something to cheer me up and my it really has. The day is not a good one though to know that there are people out there thinking of me, and now us as it turns out is very touching.


My special surprise was a delightful Mary Poppins book, I shall so enjoy it and it is indeed a very thoughtful and apt gift. One to be treasured. The card too is very very sweet and what lovely words, it means so much. Thank You very much MelMel.





I shall of course keep you posted on Mr. Poppins, I know that there have been some of your loved ones, or even yourselves who have been in the same boat, it was indeed a boat I thought we had had our fair share of, but it seems not, so we are back on for the ride again, and as my sweet husband is one of only a handful left in the Office you can I am sure understand how we feel.


Miss. Poppins has commented when we have been through the same before, on the fact that Daddy could lose his job, and wondered if she would be able to carry on having School Meals, her sweet comment made me smile :) isn't it funny how they think sometimes.


We are doing our best and are happy to take the rough with the smooth, and I shall be thinking of you if you are or have been in that same rocky boat and wish you all the very best.

  13. Hi MP

    So sorry to hear the news, thinking of you all. I'm sure there will be silver lining - I'm a great believer that things happen for a reason and that there's always something positive to be drawn from every experience x

  14. Hi Sweetie,
    Sorry to hear your still feeling blue.
    This economic climate is terribly depressing. Both my husband and I work in Investment Banks in London. We are both on our 90 days warning..it's like a notice period that you are at risk of being made redundant, so both of us are very volatile. My job isn't something I want to do, but at the moment I can't be fussy, and it looks like I'm probably safer than my husband. It's a RUBBISH time and I really feel your pain. If ever you want a chat....
