Well if nothing else all this job application filling in has given me a eye for a good form to fill in. Currently in the post / along the digital airwaves are application's for jobs at:

Plymouth college of art and design,
Huddersfield Uni,
Warrington Colliegiate,
Liverpool Community College,
Leeds Met,
Uni of Central Lancashire
Salford uni

We're proud anyway.

well, ok, a few people have asked what I would like for my birthday, so here's a list and some links.

As ever, my Amazon wish list is up-to-date - Yes there are more cookbooks, and I know everyone says we have enough cookbooks but the list is only covering gaps I think are in our library. There isn't much in the way of priority (I want it all)

I'm still a big fan of vouchers: H&M, Peopletree, or indeed anywhere else you think I might like. We don't buy so many DVD's any more but HMV or Virgin Vouchers are always welcome.

There are a few slightly strangers requests. WestCountry Wormaries sell a worktop sized wormery That would let me do some recycaling / composting at home. Etsy also has lots of pretty, funky home made things that are pretty cool. An old friend from school has started up a …
