"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

End of the job

Having been in my present long-term supply post for the past four months and being led to believe that it would almost certainly continue until the end of the school year (July) I was less than inpressed at being informed today by the head teacher that he is replacing me with someone else from the beginning of next term - a younger, and almost certainly cheaper model, to whom he is hoping to offer the job of part time Early Years teacher and cover for the staff non-contact time from September.
"I know you are not interested in a full time job," he said.
"Yes I am, if I get the opportunity," I replied.

Having had the praises of this lady sung to me whilst also being assured that my work has been excellent, the conversation finshed with a bright smile and the words,
"So in effect I'm giving you a week's notice. Enjoy your week-end."
