On Monday I was expecting to be home early as SLT was postponed to Tuesday and relishing the chance to spend some time with family. A phone call before lunchtime changed that as the school got ‘the call’ from ofsted.
Meeting back on with preparations afoot for the visit the next day, and possibly Wednesday, I had to be in for a 7:30 meeting and retreated to my office for solace and lit a candle for some calm.
The chaps were going to see the Star Wars film and Nina and I had a dinner date – much shortened by my tardy arrival. I think we had 40 minutes, but at least we managed those and enjoyed our meal at Harry’s Bar!
I even had time for ofsted nails!
On Friday we laid on breakfast and cakes at break time for staff and the week certainly seemed longer than the five days!
A beautiful sunset was captured on my way to the farm shop on Friday night and a lie in on Saturday was de rigeur!
I was glad to have a quiet weekend and the chance to visit my dear friend Sian, who has been awesome and shown such courage in her cancer battle. I feel very humble in her presence and to witness the love, care and support that her family shower on her was wonderful to see.
The visited prompted me to look through some old photos and in doing so brings back such memories of when the kids were small. What, at the time, you think is good, or funny can after the passage of time look baffling, with the question why, but these things are of their age and all part of life’s rich tapestry!
So this morning I had cards to make. One of my 2014 resolutions was to make all cards for family and so far I have kept it!
I made 8 and that is up to March!
Housework is beckoning and Kevin is busy with financial wizardry!
