Yahoo, Nona!! As I said, it's always when you least expect it...

And as for being the audience for stressed nerves, etc, I suspect that that is exactly what we are here for, no?

Congrats and enjoy!

I begin to think that dream jobs are a figment of most peoples' imaginations! And that even if we got them, we'd realize that there are still tradeoffs and downsides. May it last as long as you want/need it to, and may it help you leap into something even better and more interesting/better compensated!! :D

Sorry not been active here for a while. Was pretty ill during my Israel trip a couple of weeks back. When I got back, had my last three days at work and now in the middle of two weeks' break before my new job starts. I have taken myself off on a driving holiday with no planned route. So far been to the Cotswolds, parts of Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and now in Shrewsbury. Found plenty great secondhand bookshops along the way! Especially in Tewkesbury and Great Malvern. Not sure yet if I will continue into Wales or not before heading home early next week. Hope you are all well!
