Up till a few weeks ago, I'd've asked whether wonders would ever start, but I have been promoted. This has never happened to me before. I was once given a substantial pay rise without any change to my duties, because I bravely harrangued my boss for it and I Was Right. I was once, more typically, given a job with more responsibility and more importantness, over my protestations, with no extra money. Grr. And I once got made permanent when I was temping (who hasn't?), but I had to go through an interview process for that. This time, I have simply been bumped up the ladder because My Talents Have Been Recognised. Better job, more money, no interview.
Happy, happy, joy, joy.
It's just as well, really, as the new house is pauperising us.
