Well Done Carl!!!

Carl took his driving theory test this afternoon and passed with flying colours!! A step along the way to being a driver. It was a bit of a close shave with regards to the arrival, there was an accident on the motorway and a bit of a tail back, they arrived with 5 minutes to spare. I am so pleased for him, one exam out of the way.

More good news, we have been offered 2.5% pay rise backdated to September at work (negotiations going on nationally today) This may cause a bit of a stir, because we had asked for 5%, we rejected 2.25%. In the mean time the Police officers were offered 2.50% BUT theirs was not backdated to September, so in real terms they will receive 1.9% over the year.Its been a few years since our pay rise has been bigger than the Police Officers.

I had a check up at the hospital today, last one was in June. I saw the consultant and he has arranged for me to have some more tests to make sure everything is still OK, blood tests and ultra sound. He is not expecting to find anything but wants to be sure. He wants to see me in June next year unless something shows up on the tests in January. I feel that is very positive.
