    almost 6 years in two schools, 2 as NM.

    Before that I was an apprentice at EDS in Swansea doing well, paperwork it seemed.

    That was the problem with that job, no room for error and that is how i learn (Hence an extensive dev network for me to break!)

    8 years 7 months. Although I moan, I love the variety and freedom. I get in by 6.20 am and usually leave at 3.30 pm but do a lot more stuff when I get home. I had planned to have retired by now but I know my wife would have me working much harder at home.
