50 days


After a dreadful term that ended this week with the local newspaper front page headline 'Failing school must do better' I am finally on holiday.  Usually the mood in school on the final week is high but our HMI report went very public and local politicians have been scoring political points.  I would say that 95% of the local community have rallied round us and have been hugely supportive and angry on our behalf.  It's a fab wee school with very talented and dedicated staff.  I'm thrilled to be back there in August and with a new headteacher the school will become a model of good practice :-)




So, I have 50 days of holiday.  The list is growing longer, I have so much I want done.  I have set myself a deadline.  In 50 days, the day before I return to school I will have a (belated) housewarming BBQ party.  That will spur me on to get the last of the boxes unpacked and dealt with, get the garden in order and get my kitchen finished.

Easy night tonight then starts tomorrow with unpacking boxes that have been lying in the Teenager's room

  1. Relax and enjoy, at least for a few days. Of course, you will want to achieve a lot, but you need to recharge your batteries too. I am finding out that sometimes you are held accountable for things totally outside your control when you work for a larger organision - this week alone I have been asked why a sat nav did not manage to find the campsite and why 'I' had increased the camping fees this year - I have not been working for the Club for 2 months yet!! I hope the weather stays good for you during your time off. X
