    Last day not going well....

    ...when the old computer you need to get the teachers stuff off to transfer to the new one doesn't have drivers for a mouse and can't find them on Windows Update

    ...the new printer the head wanted for their office arrived yesterday when I told them to deliver it AFTER half-term - the head now wants it installing today!

    ....and head SUDDENLY finds 20K and wants to blow it on IPads (cause they went to a high school and everyones got one and they can do everything!)

    ....and one of the computers in the suite has failed - no prob I thought - then the nursery nurse says that's the computer they've done all their assesments on and of course its not been saved to the backed up server - they been saved locally. (I blame the network manager for not giving enough training for that one myself!)

    so instead of a nice quiet end to the half-term - its panic stations.

    OK - I've had a cuppa now, see you all on the farside

    Last day as in last day of term or last day in that role?

    Enjoy the tea and plot through the job, tell the head the printer will have to wait and go and blow his money on iPads, spending always gives me a smile, even bigger when it's not my money or budget!
