Hi, hi, c'mon in. It's lovely to see you again. Has it really been a month since our last chat over a cuppa and nibbles?
I'll just put the kettle and would you like a scone to go with your cuppa? I've recently rediscovered how to bake scones after a hiatus of probably 30 years or more. I know you'll laugh when I tell you we are eating far too many of them.
You know that I'm going to mention the weather as well, don't you? Apparently, it's been the wettest January since records began and February has been pretty wet, too. Take a good look at the blue sky outside the window, because it's not forecast to last long; sleet and snow is on the way.
Road Trip and Americana. I'm hoping that The Boy Child will want to write in it. A lot.
And speaking of The Boy Child, we are still waiting for an answer from the Review Panel. Our application for more hours was submitted a fortnight ago and we have yet to hear back from the Panel. It seems that we had to submit our application within a set timescale, but the LEA does not have to make a decision within a timescale. They only have to tell us within a week of making the decision. Frustrating, to say the least.
Gosh, that was a quick hour, wasn't it? And yet again I've monopolised the conversation.
Next month, I promise to be a better listener!
