Adam got a new job! It's barely above minimal wage, but we'll take it over no wage any day. Mimimal wage will still cover all our expenses and what not so go us! Hopefully he won't hate the job too much, it's just a factory job. What I'm really excited about is the idea of regular set wages :D I don't mind so much that it's a low wage because I'll be able to preallocate all the money. It's also in a factory where his friend is the manager, so I know he'll be okay - Adam's never worked for someone else before and he *hates* authority, so I think this will be good.

He's also got a few other prospects from friends-of-friends that look promising and pay much better (almost double!) but we're still waiting on those and I'm not relying on it or anything, but it's nice to think they're in the pipeline.

Adam is so pleased he won't have to get unemployment benefits.

It's been a weird couple of weeks - all of Adam's friends seemed to suddenly require front fences built etc - which Adam would have gladly built free of charge or for some beer or something but they were all insisting on paying him. It was awkward but kind of nice :)

Adam hit a really low point a day or two ago where he was talking about maybe selling the house and renting until I graduated. Silly idea - I know we have a fair bit of equity in the house, but we wouldn't have found a place to rent less than our current mortgage and we would have just been eating into our equity to pay it. And Adam *loves* this house. It's the house he bought when he moved out of home! So all good now.

I'm still looking for work - it turns out childcare isn't as expensive as I thought, and I think Liam would really benefit from a day or two of childcare a week.

I also went through most of yesterday without feeling nauseous, thinking I'd finally turned a corner maybe, then spent the evening throwing up everything :( boo.

Things are looking up again, hurrah.
