Not the best start to 2009....

Unfortunately my Wife has lost her job this week due to the credit crunch but has agreed to work for free to try to help the business find its feet. I fully agree with this as she is investing in her future by trying to help the company out and she has loved working there (Flexibility if our lad is ill and school holidays etc etc)
There are always people worse off than yourself (you only have to read other peoples blogs for this to become obvious) and we are not exactly desolate and have funds for a rainy day (and I think this counts) so we will be okay for a while.

Poker wise this will mean that I will have to be more selective with the games I play within my roll and will have to be at my best and it will be purely a hobby again.
To those of you who play on the same sites as me please give gracefully.

Don't worry I will not be asking for stakage just yet and tbh I've not been exactly profitable the last couple of months so wouldn't expect more than £2.50.

I've never been a negative person anyways so I firmly believe there will be a positive in everything which is why I gamble.

The post has little to do with poker but alot of mine have been general ramblings about life anyways.

Joke :-

A man and his ever nagging Wife were on holiday in Jerusalem when the Wife suddenly died. The undertaker said it will cost £5k to ship her home or £500 to bury her here. The Husband said "Ship her home". The undertaker said "But Sir, why don't you bury her in the Holy Land and save the money?" The Husband said "A long time ago a man was buried here and 3 days later he rose from the dead.. I can't take that fucking chance!"

Your wife is an admirable person for continuing work without pay.I hope everything turns out good for you both.

Sorry to hear about the job. I take my job for granted because I work for my brother so am a bit spoiled which is out of order. You've got the right attitude and credit to your wife for carrying on with the company.

Good luck to both of you, with an attitude like that of your wife you deserve it! I believe a little in karma, so hopefully some fortune will reward you soon!

2nd in the 35k, we'll chop it heads up, okay? ;)

Shit is that mate for the Mrs but its the same all over. Not effected me yet but I am unsure of what, if anything, will happen. uncertain times indeed.

Wow, in this day and age I can't believe someone would agree to carry on working for nothing! If that does not boost your family's karma then I do not know what will.

Best of luck at the tables in 2009, I'll definitely be coming back to see if Lady Luck startes to shine on you!
