    Hope everyone has a well deserved break.

    I would like to return to work after half term but I think pigs have a greater chance of flying!

    I don't expect this will be resolved before Christmas now.

    Yes, I am OK, just wish I was back at work.
    Really annoyed at a ridiculously false Occ health referral being made!

    I am not planning on attending! How much dignity and self respect can one person have taken away from them!

    I am sorry Marshall for hijacking your thread. I didn't mean too.
    Have a lovely week.

    @digoryvenn I'm not a HT, or even in teaching anymore and have only just found out what's been happening to you by accident and reading back on the 'back to School' thread.

    I've appreciated advice you've offered in the past and just wanted to offer my prayers and support. I trust you got that special forum set up and other Heads and GL have been of help and support.

    I shall keep you in my prayers.

    Thank you Lara; it is very much appreciated.

    Everyone has been really supportive on here and given great advice. I just wish you all worked in my school! I know we would all have a splendid time together!!

    Why don't we set up a free school! (tongue in cheek!)

    I know you were making this offer to all the intelligent, sensible, mature and capable people who frequent this board rather than people who merely lurk to work out if they do still want to be a head one day soon, but just so you know, I would be more than happy to work in your school.

    I would drive you batty and you'd need the patience of a saint to be my headteacher, but I would make sure you knew I appreciated all the support and encouragement you'd be giving and I usually remember to apologise when I mess up completely. You would be fab!

    Great idea Marshall! When do we start? We could be co-headteachers.

    I would very much enjoy working with you caterpillar. I would drive you batty too! Welcome aboard!!

    Nomad, the great Theo and Jesmond can be our advisors and governors.

    Forgot to say;
    Caterpillar you will make a great headteacher. Just be careful and choose your school wisely. Make sure your eyes are wide open, not wide shut like mine were! I jumped out of the frying pan into the fire and I have been such a stupid fool.

    Oh Digoryvenn, no ,no, no . You aren't the fool , you've made to feel like,one but you aren't .
    I'm afraid that institutions like schools, hospitals and the church allow the unscrupulous to cultivate and perfect their schemes and plans. Well that's my two penny worth for this evening.

    I'm glad you have posted, but I am very sad that you have had not had a resolution as yet .

    I can't like this post, because you have not been a fool.
    But thank you for the first part.
