A Conclusion of Sorts

Unrelated picture taken this weekend at the other-worldly gardens at Stourhead.

The long saga of Mr Kat and his former employer has reached a conclusion, of sorts. The tribunal process is done and has gone in Mr Kat’s favour helped in part by his former employer failing to show at a single hearing.

The sum awarded is quite staggering in that it highlights just what has been missing from our budget this past year. But until the courts force him to pay it; it’s pie in the sky!

Despite the pain and worry I am still grateful that this happened to us. We have come out of it strong, hard working and creative. We both own businesses that we are proud of and work with people who bring out the best in us.

This last year has been about surviving; I’m hoping the next will be about thriving.

      Thanks Nina – I wouldn’t take us back to employment for anything!

    This is such good news. I really hope that you feel a moral victory, regardless of how much of the cash is forthcoming.

    (Naturally, I also hope for a surprise stumping-up of the full amount, too. Moral victories are lovely, but surely even better when accompanied by financial recompense….?)

      It would be amazing although I could spend it ten times over!
