Feeling blurgh. Think it must still be the after effects of Kay's hex . Sore throat and swollen glands, feeling a bit fluey and drained. Spend a huge chunk of today in bed.

Work has been super busy this week and next week looks to be not a lot better. I've hardly been able to get on to my favoutite forums that much either. You know where I mean by now. Craft Kingdom and UKScrappers

It's interview time. My boss left and I;ve had a temp boss who has to go through the interview process. She is in a shortlist of 2. The other one is only in the shortlist because it would have then been a shortlist of one. Only 3 people applied for the role. I would have but I am still lacking in some areas.

I think that the person who has been acting boss will get the job. Not sure if she wants it though. There are a lot of management issues that if she isn't allowed to control she will not take the job. I think I'll be able to talk her into it as she only wants to do it for a year and that will give her time to train me up and then I can apply for it next year. That's assuming that I don't take offence at being passed over for promotion if/when she goes.

I really want her to take the job as she has more hands on experience than the old boss who was very good at deligating to me. It turns out that I have been doing a lot of stuff that I shouldn't have. Such as the stats and returns for funders.

Also I am on about £3k less than some other people who are in a similar role but with less to do. Mainly the other people in my type of job just do the interviewing and refering of volunteers. I do a whole lot of governance and funding advice as well.

Potential new boss is causing waves by saying that I should be entitled to a pay rise. Gotta love that
