When Job Search Emails Become Laughable

I’m not ashamed to admit I’m currently between jobs. This isn’t from lack of not trying.

What I’m looking for seems to be non existent and if it is I never even get so much of an interview.

I pick up our weekly free papers just for the job adverts, I constantly look in shop windows for advertisements.

I’ve signed up to many job search websites including the top 3 that I’ve seen on TV.

I actively apply for vacancies daily and along with that comes the daily rejection emails.

There is a few job search websites which are starting to frustrate me.

One particular site I spent hours adding all my details, work history, education etc. I set up daily email alerts relating to my location and job choice, and another when an instant job match is posted.

My PND story: Mental Health Awareness Week


This word I can’t seem to escape from lately, it’s in the news, on the TV, my social media, everywhere I turn.

This is my breakthrough story.

A chapter in my life that I can now say is over. Really over.

Don’t get me wrong I have odd wobbles. But nothing in comparison.

As you may have noticed it’s

When I was growing up depression wasn’t so out there as it is today.

Depression wasn’t for people like me – the happy family life with siblings, married parents and never went without.

But it got me, it snuck up and took it’s hold on me.

I had Postnatal Depression. And I tried to hide from it.

Mum On The Outside

When I was pregnant I was living in my childhood dream town. I had my partner, his two dogs and my phone.

I didn’t know anyone, not really.

I used to go out into town daily; window shopping, lunch on the beach or tea in a café. Anything not be sat indoors all day by myself.
I was walking around in a bubble of my own.

I’ve gone blonde…

When I fell pregnant with my daughter I was in the process of having to grow out my bleached-dyed-pink-but-faded-out hair. Back then the salon I picked literally just wanted my money in their till. They didn’t strand test my hair so when my roots lighten quicker than my previously dyed ends…its a long story. My hair felt goodish for about a month then it was spliting, felt dry and was a nightmare to style.
I’d ruined my hair.

First Time getting Gel Nails: The Beauty Studio Hastings

One Friday night I was searching for a beauty studio local to me that does threading, when I stumbled across The Beauty Studio Hastings Facebook page.
I noticed a post saying there were a few appointment spaces left for the next day. I messaged the page directly that night and Sarah, the studio owner, replied early Saturday morning  (before she was open) with a range of time slots available.

Student v Being mum

I first started looking into studying a course when my daughter was a few months old.
I couldn’t just be a stay a home mum and “just raise the baby”. I had to keep my mind busy too.
I started my first short course in March 2015. I was worried about being a part time student and a mum for the first time. The course was difficult but achievable. And it did fit easily around being a mum too.
