I'd been thinking of coming back for a while now because I am too good to let some deceitful hater on the internet who clearly leads a sad and pathetic life to ruin my place of support! Bub Hub is awesome and why should I miss out on all it's awesomeness just cause you think you can screw with my life?
Well guess what? It seemed I was already almost at rock bottom and didnt have that far to fall when you stuck your dirty nose in so it actually made it much easier to pick myself up and get on with things.
Sure it hasn't been all sugar and spice these past few weeks....More like cigarettes and booze lol but whatevs, sh!t happens hey!
So I was officially terminated from that place which shall (STILL) remain nameless about 2-ish weeks ago now so threw myself into the job hunt, re-vamped my CV and cover letters and attacked seek like a mofo!
I applied for 16 different jobs in one week...I got ONE interview out of it.
Through a recruiting agency, went and met with them - turns out the girl that interviewed me used to date one of my little brothers friends so it was a much less nerve racking interview given that we already knew each other.
Got a call the next day to say I was succesfull in scoring an interview with the company I was applying for (which shall also remain nameless, just incase she is reading!) and had that interview yesterday.
It went well and I found out this afternoon that I was succesful and I start on Monday.
The relief I am feeling is insanely overwhelming!! I still have not told my parents that I was terminated from that other place, and now I don't even have to tell them why! (So much LOL if you email them too!)
The only downside to this job is that it is full time, which sadly means less time to spend with DD, HOWEVER, It's the only place out of 16 that even bothered to contact me and with homelessness on the very near horizon, I wasn't in a position to turn that down AND it is one street away from DD's day care, which she has settled into very nicely, so I get to keep her there which is fantastic! And with the extra money I'll be earning, I will save and save like crazy to keep us as financially secure as possible!
Things with Ex are going well too. We will start shared care of DD next week (both DD & MIL have been sick this week so wasn't going to happen) and he has taken up some extra curricular activies which is fantastic and just what he needs and we are getting along better than we have in the last 6 months.
Things are definitely looking up for me now and god dammit I am going to be better than ever!
So thank you, universe for those few "lessons" that I'm sure have some kind of greater meaning to than just kicking me while I'm down, and as for my new job, I think it's safe to say I won't be going to the Christmas Party.

Many congratulations to you. I'm only vaguely sure of what you're talking about regarding the past job (bad baby brain!) but well done! I hope this is a great new path and direction for you.
