Sometimes in life we fail to recognise the simple things in life we all take for granted. My job for instance. Long hours, stressful, tiring, hot and extremely draining on the body. A sixteen hour shift followed by 5 precious hours of sleep has been telling to say the least. Not anymore. On Friday we are to be released from our trial period as trainee chefs. No severence pay, no valid reasons other than the old excuse of "too many overheads". Yeah, that old chestnut again. I now face long term unemployment, unpaid rent, and even worse, low self esteem as I join the jobless in broken Britain. I am trying so very hard to keep smiling but right now my world feels broken.


  1. Tony, this is where real men find their strength. At my lowest point I yearned just to be able to walk on grass in the rain. When I finally managed to achieve it after being told that it would never happen again, I vowed never to give up hope on any shite that life could throw at me. I've survived many knocks that should have killed me, I'm still here and still positive in my thinking. Do the same pal, trust me, you can get through anything if you try.

    1. Hey man, thanks for the encouragement I have an interview lined up early next week so I can only keep my fingers crossed. It took me a few goes before I grasped fully what the message was. Thanks again big guy, much appreciated.
