    ... there was a big brown envelope here this morning... I hoped it was the 'big piles of cash' as part of my appreciation day.

    Sadly not, just more junkmail. Sigh...

    convenient that our appreciation day is at a time when nobody is around to shower us with gifts.

    My dream came true just before the holidays..... BMW Z4(used), titanium silver with black leather interior..... only I had to pay for it myself.

    To be fair, it was partly funded by the 25% pay rise I got from my school in April (backdated to Sept 2005) when they suddenly realised I was worth more than they were paying me. Of course, the pile of NM job adverts in schools that I had been carefully collecting and handing in to our Bursar for the previous 12 months may have had some influence too

    It helps that I get a pension from my previous employer (I retired 3.5 years ago at 50), my wife works, and I have paid off my mortgage too.

    There are some benefits for getting old...not many!
