October is a great time of the year.
I love autumn rolling in and the cooler nights (freezing at the minutes) being here, meaning you can wrap up warm, light the Christmas scent candles and get ready for the festive time approaching.
Plus its Kayleigh’s birthday this month.
However its also been a bit of a funny month for the last 2 years.
This day last year was my last day working for a company in which I had been working at for over 8 years. I decided to take the leap and take voluntary redundancy.
I’m so pleased I did.
Within 3 weeks I was back in a job, I’ve had to compromise a bit on the hours I do but I’m still home by 4.45pm and it works out ok.
More than that though, redundancies are doing the round and this time I would have been at risk again along with Daddy Vs Work which would have put more stress on me than I think I would have coped with.
Thankfully his job is safe for now however I’m still keeping my fingers crossed for my old team, we’ve kept in touch since I left almost weekly and its horrible that they are going through that now.
Wind back another year to 2012 and this day is the day we had our car accident.
It’s still something that is fairly at the front of our lives as its something we still have to live with on a daily basis.
I am still having issues with my shoulder/neck and to be honest after so many medical appointments etc they have pretty much concluded there may never be a full recovery, I’m suffering with a thing called neurological pain syndrome. Which in every day terms my brain signals I’m still suffering with the injury even though there is no physical damage.
This means I’m suffering still with loss of sensation in my arm, my fingers sometimes swell up or at freezing cold to touch plus other aches and pains/
Not ideal but what can we do? Sit around moping or try and move on… I know which I prefer.
What will the next year hold? Who knows.
One thing I do know is that I’m very excited with the wedding coming up and lots of other exciting bits coming up.
