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

Frog and T.Aldous have been trying to get two Early Years Workers onto the permanent establishment. We took them on years ago as part of an early SureStart project and they've proved invaluable. There's money in the budget for it and the proposal's been sent to Human Resources a month before every deadline offered over the past two years (which is close to being unique for us).

It turns out that they've been part of the permanent establishment for the past three years and nobody in Human Reources bothered to tell anybody.

"Early Years Workers"? Are they 3-year-olds then? Surely you would have tripped over them at some point or trodden in a puddle of their sick.

Ha! I wasn't expecting that surprise twist at the end. You're full of surprises, helmy.

Gadjo: if that were the case they'd be more adult than one or two of our senior staff.

We may venture into the realms of puddles of sick later in the month.

Lavinia: now you know why we're permanently bewildered.

That's hilarious.

Kind of like working there for years because nobody told you that you were fired.
