If you’ve been following me or this blog for a while, you’ll no that about 8 months ago, The Husband lost his job.

He was originally retrenched from Chaos Computers and soon after got another (short-lived) job that he didn’t enjoy but was let go because of bad planning on the part of the employer.

All-in-all, not ideal for a couple that had only been married a couple of months. It was rather stressful and an unexpected turn.

On the job hunt… Again

BUT – now, after all these months, there’s good news!

On the job hunt… Again

Isn’t life funny?

No. No it isn’t. 

You’re not funny, Life. Stop.

Okay, basically, after my last couple of blogs about The Husband being suddenly retrenched then getting a job, I have sad news. A couple of weeks ago his new job sprouted some rubbish about him not “fitting in” (read: we’re actually not financially able to afford you) and let him go.

So here we go again.

There’s not nearly as much worry this time. I just know that everything will be okay. Even though we’re approaching the end of the month and there are bills to be paid, I have a peace that is very refreshing. I refuse to stress out. And when I feel it starting to build, I laugh. I’ll suddenly start singing or just tell Daniel that I love him. Anything to not let the worry get a grip on my brain.

I know we’ll be fine. We always have been. I would just enjoy a little solid ground, stability, even a handrail to hold onto would be fine.

But again, we’ll be fine.

So does anyone want to hire my husband? He’s a hard worker, an amazing guy, a quick learner and loyal to a fault.

Plus it was his 30th birthday yesterday and I don’t think I could love the man more.

The awful job situation – AN UPDATE

Before I give you any of the news, I just want to say thank you to everyone who has been so awesome. After my last post about Daniel losing his job (Newly-weds: The good and the awful), I’ve gotten so many tweets, messages and words of encouragement. You are all pretty freaking amazing.

Now for the good stuff

After going for an interview on Friday and a little bit of haggling, my AWESOME HUSBAND has a new job! Just like that. He’ll be the brand new manager of Bike Mania in Tokai. And if you know Daniel at all, you’ll know that his love for motorbikes is very real. Man, I am so crazy proud of him. He stepped up and did what needed to be done. Love him.


Exciting stuff, you guys. And as you can imagine, I am very stoked. It was scary there for a few brief moments but as that song says ‘every little thing is gonna be alright…’
