    That's It!

    In an hour and 20 mins I finish at this school. I have been here 8 years and indeed started my new life as an IT tech here.
    I am not really even very sad as it is definitely time to go - but it is a change and that feels very odd.
    My new job is almost as challenging as this one was 8 years ago (I used to shut myself in the server room and ring my partner, panicking madly, practically every day when I started here). It is an unmanaged system and I am thinking 'AHHHHHH' Help. When I started this job, no one expected anything and as they knew nothing about computers, I was able to stay one (very short) step ahead. But the new job is very different as the head has asked around and is expecting me to hit the ground running.......
    Which reminds me - Jiser - did you change that password? Please email me with the new one!

    Am I the first Edugeeker to move to another Edugeeker's job?

    Anyway - get ready for all the stupid questions in Jan.

    Good luck witch! hope you enjoy your new job and they appreciate you more
    I leave mine tomorrow at 1pm and will be glad to get out of Education, altho the NHS might not be much better!

    @Witch:
    I think your adorable and I know you are the right person for the job, take heart and grieve for the old job first though as it will help you get on with the new one in a different and exciting way.
    Good luck Hinney as they say up here in the North and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

    Good luck to anyone moving onto a new job...
    I finish at lunch time on Friday and am leaving for a new job too (after 16 years here!)
    I'm also moving country (to the middle east)for the new role... still in education though...
