Thank you Lin. Well back in 2014 I put my hand up as far as it would go when the head of the school asked hands up anyone who is interested in applying for voluntary redundancies! lol. I was lucky to get it as my role was as dedicated administrator for almost 11 years. If I had been one of a team then I wouldn't have got out! lol
I am too young yet to retire fully at age 59 (thanks to the government raising the retirement age to 65), so in the meantime work in a local Primary school a few hours a week as a supervisor....no stress, heaven. Now I have more time to do other things such as sewing. Like you, I also love to read usually before putting out the light before bed.
