OH has been told he'll get some money this month. Not his full salary, but something is better than nothing! (Another director had threatened to walk). So thanks for the offers, but Bess will continue to swell the numbers of the gainfully unemployed for the next month at least. Although she found the offer of digging a swimming pool and mega pruning very tempting. (In fact I'm having to hold her collar to stop her leaping out the door in excitement).
