Rob Milsom is glad to put a "crazy few months" behind him as he returned to Notts County after being released in the summer.
The former Magpies Player of the Year fell out of first-team contention last season and was eventually let go, eventually getting a trial at Crawley Town.
Since his move to the West Sussex club, Notts have fallen from grace, leading to the departure of Kevin Nolan and the arrival of Harry Kewell from the same club.
Now back at County as part of a loan move expected to culminate in a permanent January transfer, Milsom lifted the lid on the trials and tribulations of the last few months.
"It was really difficult when I got released. As a player, if you've not been playing too much in League One and Two it's tough," he told the Nottingham Post.
"You're in a position where you have to find and a club and play football. It's hard. I was lucky to get a trial at Crawley. It was certainly pleasing to get signed by them.
"It's been a crazy few months. Not just for me, but for my missus too. You don't know whether you are coming or going.
"We were lucky we were settled in Nottingham. We weren't at Crawley long enough to lay any roots down. We still had a house here so it was easy coming back.
"I'm just concentrating on every game as it comes. It doesn't matter whether you have a short-term contract or a long-term one, anything can happen.
"I'm a prime example of that given the last few weeks. You never know what's round the corner. You can only focus on the now and trying to get better every single day."
