This morning's call was for two hours work at secondary level (my level) in English. The agency didn't let me know about a similar two hours last week as they thought I would turn it down, but after nothing last week, I will accept anything. Last Summer I did a 6 week stint in Primary because there was no secondary. April and May were days that were very few and far between. I now realise that I have to do long term if I want any realistic wage as day to day is almost non -existent now. I arrived at school this morning at 10.30 for 11.05 start. I inished at 1.05. It was good and probably less stressful as the day had already started for the kids. At the moment I have to be ready for 7.30am every day, work or not. It's a bind, especially when there's nothing. I phone around 7.30 and wait for them to respond with something. I also think being away from school for longer periods of time makes it more nerve-wracking when you do finally get something. On a normal school day I would be expected to get to the school by 8.30am, but only if given enough notice. I am also on public transport which makes it more difficult and usually ends up with an expensive taxi journey when they phone me too late. Anyway, here's hoping for tomorrow, for all of us eh!
