Let it go...

No, not that Let it go!!  The letting go of things you can't control.  Over the holidays I decided to stop being angry at my Headteacher not giving me either of the 2 permanent posts over the last year.  She keeps telling me I'm going a great job,  HMI wrote in the inspection report that I've raised the standard of numeracy and writing and my colleagues tell me I'm doing a good job.  So I decided to believe them and just let it go.  On the first day back at work (Thursday)  my HT asked me to come and see her at the end of the day.  She asked me if I would job share with the returning teacher from Easter until June and she would offer me any extra days supply work in school.  I accepted on the basis that it would give me my required 30 months continuous service.  WOOHOO!
Then last night, the returning teacher told me she was pregnant again and the baby's due in July!  She'd already had a conversation with the HT who said she would work hard on asking Human Resources to let me stay and do the year's maternity cover on a permanent supply contract.  Double WOOHOO if that pans out!!
In the past when I've made a conscious decision to stop worrying or trying to control certain situations, something good has always happened as a result.  So I shouldn't really be surprised at this latest turn of events.  But I am!  :-)

On a completely different note,  Emma is 4 years old today.  It's hard to believe that the wee innocent 5 week old puppy in this pic would become Psycho Pup!!  But I love my dogs to bits and wouldn't have it any other way.


  1. Excellent news, even if she is still not offering you permanent. Fingers crossed!

  2. Excellent, hope all works out for you :)
