Thank you for the well wishes for the interview last week. I think it went well, but of course you can never tell can you!
On the other hand, I'm not sure whether I'll take it as they are offering peanuts (an hour a week over the academic year) to deal with over 50 courses. The meetings involved in those courses will take up more than those hours, and then there's the writing up of the data from the meetings which will mean more time, and if you look at the workload other aspects of the job will entail it'll be so far below the minimum wage it'll be laughable.
I do realise that we are having to 'tighten our belts' at work as the economic situation means that we're in trouble and will have to really be careful over the next couple of years. BUT - not paying the staff to do the work? Not clever people.
However, if I am offered the job, it will be a huge ego boost to turn in down, so I shall wait and see what happens. :) (of course I may not even get the opportunity as others applied for it!)
However, Mr Cee's job is doing OK, and even if it doesn't (over the 30 years he's worked in his business he's avoided being made redundant 9 times) we have a large house with no mortgage and we could always sell up and move to somewhere smaller. Plus we've been a lot worse off over the years and survived, and we will again if necessary. But we're nowhere near that yet, and I like my job and the drop in my salary in September is do-able, so it's not essential to go looking for more
So - I think it's a Book of Days sort of day as I've not updated for ages....( Read more... )
This bit outside the cut I think - Still life (share a picture you've taken OR a picture you found online that speaks to you)...
which would make a great banner for the bannergrab challenge for writerconuk
Why not have a look at the entries here
. Add to them if you feel artistic or take a banner and write something if that's your 'thing'. Alternatively - why not come along and meet everyone?? It's so much fun to relax with fandom peeps - I'd recommend it and it's not too late.
