Some of you who follow me on twitter might know this already, but I have recently been made redundant. I have to be honest, it was a bit of a shock! I've worked for the company for 4 years, the longest I've ever had a job by far, and I actually really enjoy it. I've gone from part time to full time to part time after having my son, so the thought of leaving doesn't fill me with joy, especially as I feel like I know my job really well. I mean, don't get me wrong it isn't my dream job, but I like it, and it doesn't bore me to complete tears every day, so I kind of feel like I should hang onto it. Plus I like everyone here. So I feel sad.
Anyway...I've been given a reprieve. A relocation offer, with a small pay rise, to our offices in Bordeaux. Yes, Bordeaux with the wine. And the weather. And the being in France.
Right now is such a complicated time for me. I could take my redundancy pay, which as the company isn't actually going into administration, just moving offices, is quite generous. Or I could leave this horrible little town and build a new life in a new country. I've known about this for months but I currently have three weeks to make a decision. I'm going over there next week (if I can get over my horrible fear of flying) with a friend from the office to work for a week. Obviously, I would need to think about my son and what is best for him, not just myself. I'm just so confused and don't know what to do. Clearly I can't make a decision until I've been out there. I just thought I would make a little post about what was happening in my life...
By the way, my partner has made it clear he would not want to go with me.
Anyone have a magic solution?
