Extract from recent letter from Sally, head of personnelish stuff for the dept:
As we discussed, the period of your current contract expires on 28 February 2005 and, because of your illness and in view of the modified work pattern we agreed with you to support your gradual return to full-time work, it has not been possible to carry out the normal assessment of your work and consider you for confirmation in your post. I am, therefore, arranging for the Appointments Committee to meet, hopefully in mid-December, to consider extending your initial period of appointment so that this assessment may be made at a later date when, as we hope, you will have returned to work on a full-time basis and be undertaking the full range of duties appropriate to the grade of your post
The committee want an up-to-date CV and two references, so Sally wants them by Monday. As a result I've been hacking on my CV.

I'd apprciate any advice.
