My apologies. Friday's promised update never happened. We were told the outcome of the consultation on Friday afternoon. I then left for the in-laws where there is no Internet.
I still have a job
It's a brand new job, with some different tasks, at a higher grade. Whilst this is a relief for me, it means that my workmate - B - doesn't have a job anymore. I've mixed feelings about it all. It's difficult to feel settled or pleased under the circumstances. But the long weekend helped and, hopefully, this means the pressure is off for the time being.
Normal blog business will resume shortly. Once I've finished processing ... But I need to get myself together in time for BML16.
Thank you to everyone for the good wishes and thoughts whilst this was going on. It really helped.
