Hey loveliess, I hope you’re warm and well!
So, a few weeks ago me and the girls at the work were told that on the 22nd December, our nursery would be closing. We all received an email asking to come to an urgent staff meeting and for a few days we all had our conspiracies on what it could be about. My gut reaction was that the nursery would be closing and I was right.
Initially, I was a little angry, upset and uncertain about where I’d be come the new year. I wasn’t sure if I’d still have a job and with a wedding to pay for, panic set in and I started exploring my options. I considered nannying, transferring, moving company and just leaving childcare all together. I had enough options but it was trying to find the right one. I was certain I didn’t want to take a step down because I kinda had to fight my way to the position I am now, and all the hard work and experienced gained since my promotion in August would all be a waste.
I heard about a recruitment evening in a nursery just round the corner from mine and me and a couple of others went along to see what they had to offer. A lot of the children we care for every day were moving onto that nursery, so we figured it must be alright. We filled in some forms and each had an interview, mine seemed to go pretty well and I left feeling confident.
The next morning, we were all contacted and offered a job which was great. It really took the worry out of things for me. I spoke to the company and eventually we came to an agreement that suited us both and I start in the new year, yay!
I’m really looking forward to my new role. It’s a little step up for me and I can’t wait to get stuck in. I know with a new job comes challenges and things to over come up but I felt it was time to push myself into something new (I tend not to cope well with change) and really step outside my comfort zone. Luckily two girls from my current work place are coming with me so it won’t be so daunting!
Here’s to a new year, and a new job!
Kisses and Love
