TODAY IS A FANTASTIC DAY!!! I really had to fight hard to hide my absolute
GLEE at being told this information. I don't know how long 'the process' is going to take...weeks or months...but...its all so good. I want to run skipping & singing through the streets right now... WOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Ok. Can you translate "retrenched" into American, cause right now I am a little confused here...

I've been laid off. They're closing my company. I no longer have a job - as of when I don't know. But i can now start looking for something else without being sneaky...and (hopefully) get paid out too!

OH CRAP! You've just reminded me - in all the drama, I left WP at work for the long weekend AGAIN! DOPE!

that's really great news ( I think!)
You do get notice/pay in lieu - or my ultimate favourite "gardening leave" don't you?
I got made redundant whilst on maternity leave; best thing ever : )

Was it the best thing or is that sarcasm Gael - can't tell? Not really sure how its all going to work right now - only got told this at 4pm today, & I don't think they really planned to tell us just yet either - an email was found...things uncovered that weren't meant to be known just yet... so everyone has lots of questions. Its really just an easy way out of a shitty situation...when they told me I was sitting there thinking 'this is just too good to be true'. So...its all good :)

Gael says:

No, not sarcasm at all. I hated my job, couldn't find anything else so I had a baby! (Not that that is a universal solution, mind!) The redundancy money basically paid for a whole year off.
And news like that always leaks out in weird ways, I was Duty manager when my whole company merged with another, I was put in a very awkward position.
Doing a job you hate is the pits, I am genuinely hopeful that you will find something much better suited to you, working with nicer people : )
