This Week: 08/09/2019

enjoy the little things

Marianna started school this week! It's not too different for her, because she already went to playgroup and nursery at Maendy and has been wearing the uniform for 18 months or so. But, it's a much longer day, and she's getting used to school dinners and higher expectations. So far she seems to be enjoying it and has even asked to go to breakfast club which will keep her there from 8:30am.

After dropping her off on Tuesday we went to Cwmbran Community Council to see the flag raised for Merchant Navy Day. Then I had to finish dealing with my email - I had 690 in my work inbox and then I had to tackle my deleted inbox. For ages I didn't realise you had to permanently delete them from there, not until I started getting messages about how I was about to exceed my data limits. So, yeah, I had like 11,000 to delete from there.

I had quite a range of stuff this week: a staff appeal panel at Croesyceiliog School, a meeting with the education department about the school standards monitoring sub-committee, and board meetings at Llantarnam Grange. On Friday night Anthony and I went to the Congress Theatre to see a charity am-dram performance. It was totally sold out and they raised around £3,000!

We went to the Stagecoach Bus open day on Saturday. They had lots of vintage buses there, along with music, food and various stalls. Of course, Marianna decided to throw an epic tantrum when her ice cream melted over her hand so then it was back home to think about our life choices...

On the blog I've posted guides to Fairy Tale High and DC Super Hero Girls dolls, a review of Solar Buddies children's sun cream applicator, and my five favourite films from the 1970s.
