Yesterday on my return from a lovely week’s break in Cornwall with the family I found out that I’ve been shortlisted as a winner for the remote worker awards!
This is really exciting stuff! There are 5 people shortlisted for the award I’m up for and they all look worthy candidates, so there’s some tough competition, but it’s still a real honour to have been picked.
There are a lot of prizes available for winners but one of the biggest is a home office. Winning this would really change my working life. It’s been a difficult year for us. My husband lost his job in March and has been at home looking ever since. He recently got a new job, he’d signed the contract and was ready to start, however the Friday before they told him that the post was now being reconsidered! So it’s back to square one for us. Having him and the children at home all the time hasn’t been easy for me, but there are benefits, they are a great bunch!
Anyway the Remote Worker Awards will culminate in a winning ceremony at Cliveden House in Berkshire on 10th September where I’ll find out if I’ve won. I’m not writing my speech yet…but there is no harm in keeping my fingers crossed.
