Sorry. Haven't been on here for a while (Job hunting etc). Anyway ... I've found myself a local part time / zero hours job delivering flowers from a nearby florist. Hours are variable each day, pay is min wage, it's 6 days a week and it's a small team which I prefer (Only 2-3 of us). I started last Sept and I'm quite enjoying it. Hope it last until I retire, another 8 years, I still might need it depending on how much of a pension I get. So, nowadays, I'm feeling better and not so depressed as some extra money coming in to pay the bills etc ALSO our son is at Uni and our daughter has moved back in after losing the flat she shared with her b/f. Things are changing and mostly for the good at the mo. Keep well everyone. Will try to stay in touch more. Bfn :)
*UPDATE* Have left the florist now (Nov 2017) after a dispute over pay. Have had some more health probs also had some job interviews but nothing proper yet. I'm looking for local part time driving work OR local part time warehouse work SO if there's anything about please let me know ALSO have another problem. Our local council wants to dump 90 Modular homes in TWO of our local parks. 60 very close to us and another 30 in another park up the road. These two parks are the only 2 safe places for local kids to play in. These Modular homes are for the local homeless, apparently, BUT there's the possibility that ex drug addicts and ex drunks MIGHT be moving into these units. Obviously we are concerned about our kids. We've had meetings with the council but it doesn't look as if we are going to get much help from them SO there's a website people can look at, sign a petition and do a "Letter of objection" to the council about these units which are, basically, like Portacabins (Photos are on the website). We'd like to collect as many signatures as possible and get people to do these "Letters of objection" to the council to help us STOP the council ruining OUR parks. These units are 3 stories high, are 1 and 2 bedroom, have a kitchen, shower room, 1-2 bedrooms but NO living area and are very small. The idea is to get people off the streets and out of B&B and into proper homes which these aren't. They could be in our parks for at least 10 years which could devastate the local area. Local schools, dentist, doctors and other services may NOT be able to cope with the extra and we already have parking problems here so PLEASE take a look at our website and sign our petition etc. Obviously a lot of the locals ARE getting depressed over this (Us included). The noise, dirt and pollution while the workmen prepare the area, lorries going up and down the road PLUS IF the new residents are ex addicts and ex drunks then this could cause problems in the future. Our local police can't cope with the current level of crime (I was mugged last July and I had stuff stolen. The police were useless). The website is called- "Brocket and Manford Way Protest Group" and can be found through Google Search or Facebook. Just put the name in the "Address URL" at the top of the page. Thanks for your help. It would be great if we can get this stopped so our kids can play in a safe place. There's other "Brown field" sites that the council can use for this project of there's. Thanks again :) PS- Our local council is Redbridge.
