Hooray! I am free from teaching unions! (I thought my subs were up until Feb but no, until end December.) I feel surprisingly free and easy! I may join another, if the wind takes me, or I may fly by the seat of my pants and risk not paying the outrageous £180 or so a year for nothing. Or I may look into legal cover on its own, as I intended last year. But no more irritating emails and letters and posters about striking for me! Happy New Year everyone.
