Default If one might be permitted a small woohoo.....

..the Mrs has today secured a permanent teaching position after being back in NL for 6 years and a succession of year long contracts. 'Chuffed to nuts' would be a good description of my feelings. The late August/Early Sept. stressing over whether she would have a job for the new school year is not something we'll miss.

Oh and I start a new job after Labour Day.
