What work have you been offered?

Ali said...

LOL how appropriate is ovens??

I work as a substitute teacher, and I had a grammar school call to see if I could do some work for them after Christmas.

However I'm currently being kept very busy by one of my regular hang-outs in the special ed. sector, so couldn't help them out this time.

Great to get the call though!

Judith said...

it's encouaging to receive such phone calls - at least you know that you have not been forgotten and there is always another it's good to do work on your terms and not feel pressurized (am sure I've spelt that wrong!!)

Dana said...

Wils said...
