Just a quickie to say I received my letter from the dwp yesterday (after watching for the postman for days) and I have been put in the Work Related Activity Group, which means I have to attend 6 interviews at the jobcentre to discuss help in getting back to work (look out employers!!).
I'll hopfully be able to get into some re-training maybe, my last job was in Optics, and I know I couldn't go back to that as would be unable to do the retail side, standing around on a shop floor, or the important part of taking measurements, working out best options etc.
Still feeling a bit miserable at the moment, had my appt at hospital on Tuesday, the only definate thing to come from that was I have Osteoarthritis in my feet. And had lots of blood taken and awaiting a Scan.
On the bright side I have lost 6 1/2 lbs !! joined Slimming world last month (although don't manage to stay for class as I find it all a bit overwhelming and get anxious, but I'm proud of myself for getting there in the first place) and would highly recommend it to anyone, it is so easy and no need for counting or any 'special' foods.
I think that's all for now
Thank you for all your kind comments regards my last blog xxxxx
