    Thanks guys, some great advice there! I definitely need to keep breathing!

    I still hadn't heard anything so I just called & he said, that's okay, you're casual, but I'm taking the opportunity to review the work situation, & to call back tomorrow afternoon. Since I last worked there properly a couple of years ago, 3 women now do the job I did (float secretary), & there really isn't enough work for me, so I'm not hopeful ... oh well, guess it gives me a chance to concentrate on the sprog & on applications ... Win-win, right?!

    Just got off the phone with the boss! I've got my job back for a month, then he'll see! Yay! I'm sure my natural charm will win him over!

    Wish I could work. Thank God I have no need for expensive toys and Thank Caty for teaching me how to shop for bargains.

    Well done on getting your job back.

    I was going to say I have known quite a few people quit their jobs and then ask for them back, and get them back. Apart from the embarrasment of changing your mind, its just easier for the employer to take the same person back rather than have to recruit - advertise, short list, interview, second interview - its takes a long time and costs too much.

    Im sure you will get to keep the job after the month, and its at least bought you a month to look for a job you like better.

    Cygnus hunny, why cant you work? (I know it plays hell with ones finger nails )
