    Dear All,
    I can't quite believe that I got the job I had an interview for today, thank you so much for your good advice. I thought I'd blown it by going off into waffle land, but it seems that I didn't - and they loved my music lesson! (there was a bit of a meercat moment when I told the children that I was going to teach them to read music, but I thought, what the heck! They want to see me teaching them something new!). Now I'm going to wait for my official letter in the post, make sure I have decent hours, and hopefully not have to go through it all again for a while!!
    Thanks again, all - he advice on here is worth it's weight in gold.

    That's an excellent start to the week, with such good news on the job front!
    So, congratulations! They obviously were impressed by the children's enthusiasm and your ambition for the children. Just what we need in a teacher!

    Wow, that-s just great! Really great!

    But the bad news is that . . .

    No star !

    This is because I am currently on a titchy mobile unit Chez TheoGriff Snr and I haven't managed to master the technology to post a star. I'll get it to you in a day or two.

    Meanwhile, see if you can find the thread about what to do now you've got a job offer.

    Thanls all! Am still a little amazed and trying not to be anxious that everything will be ok with hours and travel times ect...! But I'm sure it'll all work out.
    I shall certainly be checking out official-dom regarding letters and contracts, and not letting anything slip by me!!
    Hope everyone else gets sorted - and the right person in the right place. Nothing like being the square peg in a round hole [​IMG]
    Right, now, anyone for [​IMG]?!
