Update—Work

Days are brighter lately, and may this be of good luck!

Believe it or not, my dear readers, but I’ve finally managed to tidy up my files! Hence, I’ll be able to write a word or two on these pages! About time, I missed you so much!

Now, since this blog is a little camera on my anti-perfect person life, it’s better I update you on my situation. Work-wise I think I’ll talk a lot in the following weeks, so it’s better to clear any doubt!

Until mid-February 2020 my partner and me were working from our offices, Maya was going to school and I had the tiring but manageable chore of preparing dinner every evening.

After that, the nightmare began: we both had to work from home and then the school closed so the homeschooling was added to the workload. This situation also meant I had to prepare three meals and two snacks for the whole week for all of us.

Apart from being deprived of my hour of commute, which was free time and fresh air breathing space, I became accessible all the time, 24 hour a day, and 7 days a week.

A common situation was the one where I was cooking while working and also minding Maya and her homework!

But then, in July I was laid off and so I lost one of the three jobs I was carrying on.

Since the past months had been so heavy, I’d then decided to decompress and calm down, and not looking immediately for a new position.

I felt the most important thing for me at that moment was to connect with myself once again and, as consequence, be a better mom and human being.

It was evidently a poor hope, as how could I know that this problem would extend for so long: stuck abroad for Christmas and festivities (of which you had a glimpse) and then second and third lockdown…I actually lost the count.

Despite being locked up and going slightly bananas, I reached a point where I needed to find a new job, so the search has begun. This time I’m asking support to an agency I found thanks to my old employer, who kindly enough included it in the redundancy package.

I will keep you posted about it. Now you know the situation and it will be easier to understand what I’m talking about.

Anyone else out there in the same situation?

Let me know in the comments below!

    Yeah, things are nuts at the minute, I can’t think of anyone I know whose life is the same as it was, even 5 years ago. Living in exciting times isn’t always good…

    1. I totally agree with you, Jill! I keep my fingers crossed and hope this will end soon!
