Get a job at John Lewis! It's a partnership so all employees get the same % bonus each year (obviously some are more highly paid than others) but after 25 years you get six months paid leave as a thank you!

I got a letter from our chairman for my 25 years and then promptly went back to my desk.

Just noticed that the bit, don't know the technical term for it, that's toward the bottom of the right hand side on the home page, it's the one that say who's on-line and how many people have been on-line, has vanished. Strange, could be those damn greys again I suppose. Shocked

That's probably one of those weird tech glitches that comes with a change of user group. It's something to do with the permissions scratch

Might be time for a change of scene, Del. If there's one thing I've learned from my years of self employment its that moving around leads to an increase in pay and better perks. If you stay put in the same place too long you can find your pay has slipped behind what others are getting for the same job, even within the same company sometimes.

I've been a little busy the past week. My little one, Emily Ansel, was born on March 15. 7 lbs 9 oz, and an absolute doll. She had my heart from that first wail! 



A week later, and not only is our little family healthy and happy, but I've FINALLY gotten the urge to write again! It's like a fog's been lifted. And Emily's so easy going, she gives me plenty of time to write.  afro

She's a beauty, Angela Congratulations.

I hope she had a relatively easy birth - she looks pretty relaxed about it, if that's anything to go by.  smiley

Great, Angela, congratulations. Now I am a new parent vicariously by being a grandad, I am re-living the whole thing again. When my wife and I return home from Manchester, we get withdrawal symptoms from not cuddling Oliver after a few hours!

Enjoy your Emily Ansel - as you say- even through the wails  cheers

Thanks, Geoff! I'm assuming that this doesn't have anything to do with babies ...
