Whhooo-hoooo! I have a job!

Just a very short post - I will join the ranks of permanently employed as of 1st September 2006.

All these months of temping have reaped their rewards as I've just landed the job of School Finance Officer at a little school about a mile and a half up the road from our house.

It will be 16hrs a week spread over 4 days and fits in with the children perfectly - what more could I ask for?

Thanks to everyone with their words of support over the past few weeks when I was despondent about not getting anything - my patience and persistence has been worth it and I really value all the good vibes you've sent to me over the airwaves :o))))))))) Yippee!!!!!!!!
