 It's been a good week - but all good things must come to an end.

I'm looking forward to getting back, though.  I enjoy my job and my colleagues.  A little nervous about my conversation with my line-manager - but only because I want to make sure I get my point across properly this time.  I do find him easier to talk to than my previous line-manager, though, and I believe he takes a greater interest in me.  I just don't want our boss to think I'm a trouble-maker who is going to rake up old stuff every 6 - 12 months, so I need to make sure my line-manager understands where I'm coming from so that there isn't any miscommunication between him and the boss.

Oh, what fun!

But I do have two suggestions for moving forward.  Firstly, the regrade.  I don't care what our boss' boss 'thinks' we need - this was the man that thought that I and 1 BA would be enough to support all the bigger, better projects that were coming our way.  Our boss' first act when he came into post was to change the BA post to a Senior BA - then he got working on the other posts.  We now have a team of 7 and our boss believes we need more!  And, anyway, this isn't about what role is needed on paper, this is about what's fair to me.  If I'm working above my grade, the University needs to recognise that, dammit.  And, if this process proves that I'm not, actually, working above my grade, then we draw a line under the whole thing once and for all.

Secondly, if the boss does want more roles, what are they?  What do they look like?  And how do I progress from where I am to a position where I can apply for one?  Because I don't want to be in the position I was in when the BA post was advertised and being told not to bother because I wouldn't be considered.

Hmmm...  Looks alright written out in my on-line journal.  Let's hope I can say it as sensibly!

I also need to start writing something down for my talk on Sunday.  Again, I know what I want to say - just need to get the balance between the 'whole Bible' stuff and my own passage.  Fingers crossed!
