BN: I definitely won't be able to do PBP this year.

GN: The reason for that BN is that my maternity cover contract looks like being made permanent (the person I'm covering for has decided she's not coming back to work). When I took the job on, I was expecting the contract to finish by the end of July, which would have been perfect PBP-wise, but if I'm staying, the schedule means there's no way I will be able to take the time off in August. But a permanent contract is excellent news for all sorts of reasons, so not to be sniffed at.

++GN: One of those reasons is that I'll be able to take advantage of the C2W scheme to replace my dead Brompton (and will have justifiable reason for doing so).

BN. A local village pond had all its fish hoovered out some months ago by scrotes.
GN. Visited today and pond was full of fish of all sizes.
