Today’s daily promptunexpectedly, you lose your job. (Or a loved one. Or something or someone important to you.) What do you do next?

Ummmmmmmm…unexpectedly lose my job…um that hasn’t happen.

I’ve always made the decision to go.

A decision that is in effect right this second in the rather empty house.

Well rather empty but with a bed, creaky old orange couch, washing machine that only spins half the time, fridge, but no food, no cutlery or crockery…it’s only for about 34 more hours until I hit the road and leave Country Town after 4 years.

It’s been the same in other places, there’s only been one job where it wasn’t fully my decision, but we knew we had funding for 2002-2004 and we had a hint by about July 2004 that we wouldn’t get more funding, so there was more than enough time to plan for the future and find a new job and a new version of Country Town.

Same with losing a love one…whilst those moments haven’t been great, they’ve all been expected to an extent…as in the person was terminally ill and we knew the end was near.  It doesn’t make it any easier, but still it’s not completely unexpected.
