A new chapter has started in my life: I quit my old job and will start a new one on February 03rd!
The decision was kind of an unforeseen turn….but during last summer I started to realise that I wasn’t happy at my work, too many changes (for my taste) and in the end I just wasn’t able to stand behind whatever I was doing.
So I started to look for a new challenge – without much hope, I must say. With 50+ you’re actually not very attractive anymore in the job market (at least here in Switzerland).
All the more was I surprised that I received an answer from the first and only application I have sent. They wanted to meet me and in the end the whole procedure went with a dizzy speed. It seemed like it was my lucky destiny….
So, in November the new contract was done and signed and I explained my boss that I would quit – the notice was already written and ready to hand in. I think it was a bit of a surprise for them.
Anyway, with some vacation days left and many hours overtime, I had my last day on Friday 10th January 2020 and right now I enjoy three weeks vacation! Jolly good!!
My first idea was, I might spend a few days in Loano with my mum, visiting Luna Azzurra. Well, until I realised that I had to drive there, which takes between six and seven hours. I never drove that distance by myself, and with the toll gates in Italy….hmm…I wasn’t sure I could do it. So, sadly, I skipped the plan!
However, I’m not at all bored! Now I have time to create some new jewellery, meet my mum, visit friends and simply enjoy “la dolce far niente” (even when staying here, haha)! It’s balm for my soul and I suddenly realise, how much I needed the time out!
Hope, you guys have as much fun as I have – see you!
