Not Open for Business
We made sure that BB had all his stuff with him this morning when we left the house. Once I was at work, I had the opportunity to tell my “old team” (those who were around anyway) my good news (which I alluded to yesterday) – which is that I have been offered the job I have been doing on a temporary basis as a permanent post - and I have said yes. It will be a demanding role – as the last few weeks have demonstrated, but I am ready for a new challenge. I told them I would b back in a few days to clear my “old desk”!
Apart from that, my day was pretty busy and as ever I drew the short straw and had to watch the budget for anything of relevance to our work interests. As far as I heard, there was only one issue of direct interest, and if I had blinked I would have missed it!
I was the parent helper at badminton tonight. The coach gave me the responsibility for pairing the kids up for matches, based on his grid and rankings. It was almost a mathematical exercise – and I certainly didn’t please all the kids who would rather have played with their choice of partner.
Wednesday night is homework night – hand writing, spelling activities and maths were all tackled. Cello was going to be a step too far.
This empty/derelict building stands alone in a small street. Contrary to the sign on the door, this does not seem to be open for business.
