A letter in the post this morning from school.. with news of a pay rise. I haven't had one since I've been there (3.5 years)
It's very substantial, totally unexpected and there are no catches in the small print! I haven't even dropped any hints.
Suddenly I'm feeling far more mellow about all the grief I've had at the start of this term. Someone, somewhere obviously appreciates me.
My feeling of goodwill may well evaporate by 08:05 on Monday, but for now, I'm a very happy bunny!
