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

Vamping till not ready

My days in this library service are numbered. In some ways this is a relief - it's never been a good fit - but in many ways it is to be regretted: I've never been better-placed for getting the stuff done I've been trying to do this past decade.

The good news is that there is almost certainly a job for me "elsewhere in the organisation," at least until next Winter's round of cuts when who knows what may happen. I can't say that I'm entirely thrilled by the prospects but I guess a gig's a gig and all that.

I've been through it. It's exhausting, make sure you eat lots of protien and find a source of laughing to drink from.

I've survived so many recessions that I know one thing is sure - this too shall pass. Or as Granny would say "What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger". Promise.

You're wanted. That's a fact. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.xox

Wanted in three Midwestern states, Pat. :)

Knock 'em dead, slugger!

Heck, I've also been through it and it's rarely a pleasant situation. But, as they've said, you're 'wanted'. Think of it as 'headhunted', if you like - puts a nice bit of spin on it.

Like Pat says "You're Wanted"!
