The quandary is over.
I didn't take the job. For better or for worse, I'm a full-time writer next year.
I was sneaky though, I'm also their number one sub to call if someone's away or ill so I stay in the system in case I have some "What was I thinking!" moments and realize I could use a part time job. Once you are in the staffing system, it's SO much easier!
In other news, our next door neighbours either adopted a full-grown mutt last weekend or they are looking after one for friends, but it's a howler. It's raining outside and the poor thing is annoying the crap out of my by howling constantly. We've had the fan on at night so I can only hope that they take him in and that's why I haven't heard him over the last week. Because if they don't take him in at night, and we DON'T have the fan on tonight, we are going to have a problem.
Aren't I cheerful?
