It feels like everything is completely back to normal after the holiday season now. Marianna is back at school and has had her very first reading book sent home. I had a governor training session at Maendy, and a full governors' meeting at Croesyceiliog. I'm on the headteacher appointment panel there so it's gearing up to be a busy time.
At work we had an extraordinary council meeting this week, plus T22 scrutiny and planning for another bunch of meetings next week. It's like I've never been away.
I spent quite a bit of time this week sorting through old books, clothes, and toys in readiness for a trip to Cash 4 Clothes and the charity depot on Friday... Then the clutch went on my parents' van so that was the end of that plan. At least the sorting part of it is done now, I guess.
Deal of the Week -
On the blog I wrote about my top five houseplants for Houseplant Appreciation Day, an introduction to the Gener8 Ads browser extension, and a review of Sally Reader Miniatures. I also wrote about my one woman campaign to get magnifying glasses in supermarkets, Kwik Fit's research into the true cost of running a car, and the Morse code alphabet for Learn Your Name In Morse Code Day on Saturday.
The January Tots100 update came out this week too and at first I was at #70! Then it readjusted and it went down to #81... Still, even with the drop it's my best ranking yet. Fingers crossed it's a good omen of things to come.
