I was made redundant 5 years ago after being employed with the same company full-time for nearly 22 years. I was so glad as my role had changed so much from when I originally started and another 15 years in a complaints department made me break out in a cold sweat. I now work part-time in a job I love and would never work in an office again. No regrets.
its coming up to my 1yr aniversary - but i got fired not made redundent as worked for company for less than 1 yr so they didnt need to do redundency. at 1st i was shocked, scared, angry. My DH was also going to be made redundent later in the year so pressure for job was big. fate stepped in and everything came together to allow us to set up own business. now i get to spend much more time with DS and no longer have to commute 2hrs each way for work!! loving it
