Job Hunting!

I have been away from blogging for a while due to being a bit busy and due to that annoying phrase, The Credit Crunch! which has affected my work place and it seems job loss is coming sooner rather than later, couple that with the difficulty of finding a new job, any job, really not easy but hopefully inshaAllah things will get better.
Unfortunately at times like this, coming to work becomes stressful and you loose all interest in doing your work and just wait for the day that you have to leave, I really cant wait! and wouldn't mind having some rest but having a family and responsibilities means you can not rest until you find a new job, so its going to be a, New Year No Job or New Year New Job :o)

For something lighter, my kids have told me to watch this new Christmas TV advert by John Lewis Department Store which they find very funny not just for the weird characters but mainly for the baby that appears towards the end of the advert, I watched it and yes I laughed too, what a baby, keep an eye for this mega cuteness with a clump of hair, here it is on YouTube:

Salam Anglo-Libyan,
Cute video and that baby is indeed adorable.

I'm really sorry to hear about the job situation and completely understand how you feel about wanting a break but know that you cannot because of your obligations. I do wish you and your family well, and for a wonderful opportunity to present itself to you, inshallah.

It seems job losses only happen before Christmas, I wonder why. Good luck in job hunting.

My advice to jump ship and not to wait till you get the P45, I made a mistake once and I kept hold on to my last job to the last minute thinking that things might change, and with all these empty promises from the managers that the company could be saved, and the grass is greener on the other side etc...till I came back from my holiday and I found the redundancy note in my letterbox, it was so tough to get the job that I want but after a few months wait I managed to get the one that I like.. it will be a struggle to find a replacement at this time of financial crisis that UK and the rest of the world going through, best of luck and my Allah give you the guidance in getting your next job.. Salaam.
