We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

The impurities caused the laughs

Beryl's decided that she's going to retire in a couple of months' time. She reckons she's had enough of the whole shebang and wants to get out before it's Senebene Library's turn for the will-they won't-they move to a multi-service centre game.

"I could do without the pissing about," she says.

So that'll be another vacancy to have to cover for a while. Doreen's quite determined to get the post filled a.s.a.p. There are other parts of Policy Group quite as determined to have business as usual.

Meanwhile we still haven't filled the Branch Manager's post at Roadkill, which has been vacant for months. Nor, indeed, Bronwyn's old job after a year. And Jim's been gone more more than six months.

If one of our performance targets involves massively underspending the staff and book buying budgets then we must be heading for a gold star.

But I thought this was the time of year when you Librarian johnnies all bought books like there was no tomorrow?

It is.

And we're not.

It's not an easy one for me to get my head around.

Wow, people are making redundancies and cuts and you're short of employees and not spending. Is there some cunning mmasterplan that's only available on a need to know basis?

Is T.Aldous worried about the financial crisis and using the money to stockpile tins of Spam and rice pudding behind the bookshelves?
