I'm happy to report that I took my other two tests this afternoon and passed both. I don't think I couldn't have faced the fallout had I failed either IT or literacy, or both - given that I teach the former and write blogs utilising the latter.
So I'm two thirds there. The numeracy test still eludes me and I've put a bid in on eBay for a study guide (yup, I'm that desperate). Hopefully, it won't be too long until I re-sit (I suppose it would help if I booked...) but as always, I'll keep you posted.
Other good news - hey, it was a positive day - I've been invited to interview at a school next Friday. They are going to send me a lesson topic to teach and I've been told that I'll be informed as to whether or not I've been successful by the end of the day. This would be a full time job, to start in September (assuming that I pass my numeracy test), so that's good.
I've got another assignment to hand in tomorrow. I've been given an extension as I only broke up from school last week. Not that you're particularly interested, but the task is to write up a Scheme of Work to teach one of my topics. Flummoxed already?
Other good news on the car front. We're this close to getting our new vehicle. Hopefully, we should be driving around in it by this time next week. Then there's the other issue of the garage to sort out. They are charging an unbelievable amount for the pleasure of telling us that the car was unrepairable. Needless to say, no money has passed hands yet. Believe me, this one's going to run and run (as they say in the media).
And that, as they say, is it, for the time being. Pesach is on it's way out, which is not a bad thing. Saying that, this year's event has been pretty pleasant and for once, we haven't starved. Thank the good wife for that. Much as I am getting used to chomping matzah - and I use the word advisedly - I really am looking forward to my pizza and pasta and hot toast with oodles of crunchy peanut butter.....ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!
Enough masochism/sadism for now.
Time to get back to work. I've got an assignment to hand in in less than eighteen or so hours and I'm nowhere near finished.
