Excuse me but can I be you for a while?
I suspect this won't apply to many of you, but you never know, and it may be interesting anyway: here's the job advert for my maternity cover. So if you fancy having a go at being me for a year, you know what to do. :-)

(If anybody's seriously interested, feel free to ask me more about the job, here or by email -- in general though there's lots of scope for doing interesting and fun stuff, and the department is a good place to work!)

A year off?! Wow. Great!

That's 26 weeks' full pay, 13 weeks' statutory maternity pay, and 13 weeks' unpaid leave. Though I am actually hoping to be able to give the last month of that unpaid leave to addedentry (we're just eligible for the new system whereby you can share leave between both partners -- ie it comes into effect for babies due on or after April 3rd, which is my actual due date) and take some/all of it as holiday myself (I can't believe I still accrue holiday while on maternity leave, but I am assured that it's so!). I know I'm jolly lucky to have this -- the University's maternity policy is very generous.

While I suspect there are many things you do which I can't, I'd still like to (cough post deleted) talk to you about the job....

I was just wondering if you were on her f-list. Ah well, that solves that one.

Ah! I thought you'd already said it wasn't up your street. Drop me an email or come round for a coffee & I will tell you anything I can.

In fact (threads merge!) I wonder if we can combine job-discussion and drilling some time this weekend...?
