Bad news: the recession is still around (I think).
Good news: it hasn’t managed to kill me (yet).
Recently I stuck my head in the sand and when I emerged to have a quick look around, I found that there were hordes of people out there who were shaking their collective defiant fists at the big, bad recession. Huh? Did I miss a meeting?
I guess I must have!
And what I saw made me smile. I think I know who the winner of this spitting match is going to be: people like you and me! Recessions come and go; people like us will still be around. OK, we’ll be a little battered and bruised for the experience, but that’s to be expected. After all, this is the real world – not Heaven! So I’d better just shut up and quit moaning.
I may have joined the ranks of the unemployed but I’m glad – at least, to my mind – I am NOT unemployable. But at my age, employment may not be an option that’s wide open. That’s OK, though. I’m off to chase my dreams as a self-employed person.
So, as they say – in sickness or in health, for better or for worse, for richer or poorer – I’m back.
And I hope this is not bad news!
