Time for an Update!

Hello my loves and welcome back to itsjustabbsxo!

time for a life update

Wow things have literally gone from 0 to 100 real-freakin’ quick! I only got home from my holiday around a week ago and now everything has literally changed. There is a big update for me to tell you about – it hasn’t been the easiest decision but it has had to be made.


I had a meeting with the Managing Director and the HR Manager, I mean that already sends off bad signals doesn’t it? I have been informed that my job is being made redundant. Yup, redundant. Brilliant! I was offered another position in the firm however, this position wasn’t something that intrigued me. It made me so upset, I can’t even explain it. I know I haven’t been happy at work but I honestly wasn’t expecting this to be the outcome of a meeting. I made the decision to take the redundancy and accept it. I mean, everything happens for a reason right?

I do feel sad to be leaving because it was my first full-time job; I have developed such strong relationships with my close colleagues that I will be so sad to leave them all however, life must go on! I am looking for a job however, I have decided I am not going to jump on the first opportunity I get; I want to take my time to find something I feel I will really love. Maybe having a month off will give me a whole refresh, a new start. It will also give me so much more time to get back into my blog; write and plan my posts for the rest of the year.

I have never really been one to know what I want to do with my life, as previously mentioned in my welcome back post. I feel this time off and redundancy will give me a chance to find my feet and find where I am meant to be.



Moving on from the disastrous work life, I have seriously been loving Netflix recently and have been obsessed with not only series but also some movies. I thought I would share a few with you!

  • To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
  • The Kissing Booth
  • Gilmore Girls (I am obsessed!!)
  • Teen Wolf
  • Shaun of the Dead
  • Eli
  • Haunted Season 2


Blog Posts:

I have so many ideas for blog posts for the next few months and I cannot wait to start sharing my Christmas content with you all! Is there anything in particular you would like to read about over the Christmas period?! Please let me know! I plan to post at least one post a week, hopefully two!

And there we have it, an update on my life as of recently; it has been weird and confusing to go through this sort of thing at work, I haven’t ever been through anything like this before and so I do feel confused and slightly upset. However, I know that it is for the best and I will be happier in the long run! Have you ever been made redundant?

time for a life update-2

Until next time,

  1. Hi Abbie, I’m so sorry to hear that you were made redundant! It must have been a shock, especially if you didn’t see it coming. But like you say, maybe it is for the best, and you will be able to find a new job that you are truly passionate about, and have some time to focus on your blog too. Good luck with everything!
