Finally Let Go!!

Hi everyone, I know it has been some time since I posted and I will be getting back into regular posting very soon I promise. But first let me tell you a story about what has been happening in my life of late. . . .First off never work with friends or family. . . . . . EVER!! I have finally let go of a friendship that was close to 17 years long and I never thought I would be saying that but it is very very true. After telling another staff member that she would be getting rid of me in a few weeks, it made me realise that she was never a friend, maybe a long time ago but that disappeared into dust. Now with all of this going on in my life I was far too stressed and far too upset to be working on projects in an uplifting manner because I was dealing with that loss of friendship and trust. There are now only a small handful of people in my life that I trust implicitly and two of those are my husband and the other happens to be a wonderful woman I have not personally met but we skype several times a week and have done for the last couple of years. I will never allow myself to trust anyone (other than the ones I mentioned) again like I trusted this other friend. I had been the victim of bullying in the workplace at my previous job and I can honestly say that I and others have been the victim of bullying in my current job. Well no longer current as I resigned last Friday because I was sick of taking crap and made to feel less than.
So now that I have made the decision to finally let go of all that stress and anger I can now move on in a positive way. I did however make some lovely friends whilst I worked at my job and they know who they are and we get together on a very very regular basis either at my place or out for a meal. We will be doing a road trip soon to see another friend who left the same workplace due to the same treatment as myself. I cannot wait to see her and I am so looking forward to the road trip with the girls.
I know this was long winded but I wanted my followers to know and understand what has been going on and why I have not been producing any projects of any worth although I have taken to scrapbooking in a big way so I will be showing a lot of that in the coming weeks *grins*.
Thanks for your continued support girls.
