Gis a Job!

Recruiting very soon for more staff for the new library.

Assistant manager vacancies will be published in the next couple of weeks with the rest of the frontline staff published in the next couple of months.

It's really coming together now!


The Cleaning Bible: Kim and Aggie's complete guide to modern household management

Reading about it makes me feel virtuous, even if I never get around to the practical bits...

Links to the library catalogue

Look - it works!!!

Thanks "sutlib reader", my boffins have been put to work and by the power of Greyskull I now "have the power"

mwah mwah mwah......

Oh, I see you have a blog too! Very nice.


Watching The English by Kate Fox. Great bit of pop anthropology on the characteristics of "Englishness". I'm not English myslef, but I do suffer from many of the identifed traits.

I am a particular fan of the "denial rule" of public transport - denial that anyone else exists, and sometimes that even you exist. This rule may only be broken on 3 counts:
1. The politeness rule - to say sorry, excuse me or "is anyone sitting there"
2. The information rule - to ask a direct information question, "is this the Paddington train?"
3. The collective moan - something goes wrong, delay is announced, and everyone is permitted to have a whinge, provided that the denial rule is only temporarily suspended and immediately the problem is resolved, everyone goes back to ignoring one another.

Why not link this to your catalogue entry rather than to Amazon?

Good question "anonymous". Like all the best questions, this one has a really simple answer - it doesn't work. I'm not sure why - may have to ask an esteemed colleague, but it doesn't.

However, rest assured that you can check availability of any titles I mention at any time by clicking the link on the right hand menu (scroll down a bit).

Not perfect but thems the breaks.
