That’s me officially unemployed which is a strangely liberating feeling! Last week was my annual leave and its the weekend now, so my new life starts on Monday. I realised that until I actually start charging for photography (assuming that’s what I’m going to do), I need to register with the job centre in order to get my NI contributions paid. Not a visit I’m looking forward to but needs must – I don’t want to have no pension when I retire.
The week just passed was spent mostly with appointments – opticians, doctor, vets, etc. I also got a lot of clearing out done and am about 80% of the way to having my Vanity room finished. The next few weeks I’m just working on my chores list like registering for tax and doing a self assessment for You Tube, and learning photography editing. I’m not going to organise any photoshoots just yet as one shoot takes up to 2 days, and I’d like to do that when I’m 100% focussed on it, rather than being worried about the list of to do’s still going on.
This week coming is fairly quiet so I should get a heap of sorting out done, and then on the Friday I’m back to the GP because my visit last week showed my BP was high again. I suspect another 48 hour BP machine may be in my future. They will be reluctant to give me medication because I’m asthmatic.
That’s as much as I have to update you on just now, and I’m hoping my non work life won’t be too boring to give updates on lol. I have actually done a bit less You Tube lately, partly because I’m on a mission with the to do list, but also because of the change round in my vanity room and new camera – trying to get the lighting and focus right is a work in progress.
I dyed my hair red last week as you may have seen – love it!
