Last week I applied for at least 3 vacancies on beautiful Orkney island, mainland.
Yes I know, we just bought a house and I was lucky enough to finally find a job near where I live now….
If there wasn’t a BUT!
But, two things:
- There is not much more to achieve for me… I think… on the other hand, I could stick it out until another position as retreat manager or similar will open internally…. But I don’t think I want to work for the rest of my life in a retreat, managing a café and checking guests in and out… Don’t get me wrong, the location, my colleagues and the guests are all lovely…but:
- The wage I earn is not enough to provide for my family in case my husband would lose his job or even worse.
And after all we wanted to go Orkney anyway. No, let me rephrase that: I wanted us to go to Orkney! So here is me thinking, searching desperately for a job I love, where I can achieve more skills and where I finally finally settle, happy as Larry!
But it feels as if nobody wants to give me a chance. I apply for jobs but get one rejection after the other and it is very difficult to remain in my Franky-Everything-Will-Be-Alright-Bubble!
My husband says, all you need is the one person who believes in you and gives you a chance to prove yourself! Well it would be nice if that person would turn up!
And now another bomb which could change everything again:
My husband told me yesterday evening all nonchalantly that he applied for some vacancies in, and now here it comes, Ireland! Yes, Ireland!
How exciting is that???
So it might be my husband who moves away for a better job and not me.
However, I will keep you updated!
