It's been far too long since my last post. So long, in fact, that my line manager at work has told me that one of my performance management targets for this coming academic year is to start blogging again! So, here we go. I thought I'd give you a rough idea of what's been happening in my life over the past few months.
Things which are the same
1. My husband and I have survived to celebrate another wedding anniversary.
2. I am proud that I have managed to keep son, cat and hedgehog alive for another year, not necessarily in that order ...
3. Aforementioned son still knows more than I do about everything.
4. The mechanic at our local garage continues to hide when he sees me pull onto the forecourt.
5. I am still doing the same job and still threatening to go and stack shelves in Lidl instead.
6. I have not won Euromillions.
Things which are different
1. Michael Gove is no longer Secretary of State for Education.
2. We have a goldfish called Neymar. Ronnie is showing him a lot of love. He is currently under the protective force of the Baptist Hymn Book which is securing the lid of his tank against almost certain attack.
3. I no longer drink alcohol. This means I save money, don't get headaches and don't find myself, late at night, agreeing to take ownership, via Facebook, of random kittens.
4. Michael Gove is no longer Secretary of State for Education.
5. Did I mention that Michael Gove is no longer Secretary of State for Education?
