This Week #33

Do more of what you love.
Life this Week

Thursday was really interesting - I was on the interview panel for a teacher for the first time, to appoint a KS2 lead. It was good practice because I'll be doing the same for a deputy head in a couple of weeks time! If you've ever thought about becoming a school governor, I've got a little guide on it HERE.

Other than that, it's just been the usual. Chores, work, blog, repeat. I sold another pile of stuff on ebay, and on Saturday we went out canvassing again for the May 5th elections. At least we didn't come across anyone actually planning to vote for the National Front - if there's any election leaflet coming through my letterbox courtesy of Royal Mail to complain about, a leaflet in support of the deputy leader of the National Front has to be it!

That's Life - aren't men daft?
That's Life printed this pic of Anthony this week - and paid us £25 for the privilege. :)

On the Blog

I'm working on a series of calendar blog posts - all those random national days, special days, etc. I posted the first one, for January, on Monday.


  1. Blogging calendars are a great idea! I always go to the holidays list when looking for post ideas, especially for topics for our book blog discussions.

    1. Me too - I figured it was time to finally start putting my own list together! :)

  2. I love these posts, because they make me feel like I'm getting the inside scoop on what it's like to be Welsh!

  3. Canvassing! I don't envy you. We only had one candidate knock round and from his leaflet I'm not entirely sure he's signed up to the right party!

    I hope to take one of the cubs to vote again tonight. I'm hugely ambivalent about the Police Commissioner elections though.


    1. I know loads of people who love it, but I hate canvassing - it makes me so nervous! It wasn't too bad last week though.

      I know; I'm even on the Police and Crime Panel for Gwent (the panel to scrutinise the commissioner), and I still can't get excited about it. x

  4. Full on! I have been totally lazy this week. Had the week off work and pretty much did nothing. Only just started on the washing. Sarah #FabFridayPost

    1. Sounds awesome! I was off yesterday and spent the whole day scanning old photos... It's a project I'm beginning to regret starting! x

  5. Sound like you had a great week. Well done on winning the WB DVDs! That's awesome! I have also entered your competition too. Good luck to me! :)

    Thank you for linking up with us on #FabFridayPost

  6. Sounds a good week - and I love that quote, we should all do more of that. Thanks for lining up to #PoCoLo and sorry it's taken me a while to get here x


I love to hear from you, so please don't be shy!
