today i had THE meeting with the headmaster and the horrid colleague and it went… well? he was really calm, i was really calm and we both just wanted to move forward and put this whole thing behind us and work together in a professional manner. so we made some arrangements about that, shook hands and then went our way. i have to see how this plays out because his personality is very unpredictable, but i can honestly say i am cautiously optimistic. his one more strike equals being fired helps tremendously, he has to be on his best behaviour. can start looking forward to the future again! now time for the train home and then for the homemade soup i’m gonna make from scratch.
