My lead-up to Christmas is not going exactly as I thought it would. I know, I know! No-one’s lead up to Christmas is ever smooth or runs according to plan.
However, my lovely temp role has come to an abrupt end.
I was verbally offered gainful employment in this temp capacity until 14th December, making end of year activities, present planning and purchasing ever so easy. But as with the nature of temping, my role ceased almost as quickly as it became available.
I don’t know what is going on, only that the decision is not based on anything I’ve done or not done (always good to know!). It’s more about the structure of the organisation, I think, and that staff seem to be running out of the door at a great pace. It’s less than satisfying for me and certainly makes finances rigid, but there’s a life lesson right there. You don’t always get what you want, or what you’ve been promised.
In such times, it can be hard to find the jewel amongst the deep earthy crust of disappointment. I’ve been digging away since receiving the news last night and during this morning. I haven’t struck a gem yet, but I guess tapping out words, positive thinking, applying for new jobs will bring a shiny precious revelation soon enough.
Have a good day everyone!
