Phil was made redundant from his job yesterday. It’s a very unfair situation in that his position was made redundant, and replaced with a regional-manager type of position. The same thing that he is now doing, but for several radio stations rather than just one. So he applied for it, and didn’t get it even though his department has met all targets and been very successful, because he didn’t have “multi site” experience. It just sounds as though someone’s golf buddy or whatever already had the job. So, he’ll only have another two weeks of work.
Needless to say, we’re not feeling the spirit of the season. :(
I finally hired a Content Coordinator, which will be a big relief. I think she’ll be perfect – java, jsp, hand-coding html, graphics experience, experience working with a CMS, databases, etc. That will be a huge load off my shoulders.
Kip is still very ouchy, but when I briefly lunged him this morning, he wasn’t acutely lame at the trot as he has been, so I decided to wait a few days on having the vet come out. I have my fingers crossed for the best…especially since there isn’t a lot of free money right now for expensive vet visits.
