Good morning, everyone. It's another early start to the day! I'm finding that I am sleeping well but seven hours is enough and if one will go to bed at 8:30 . . .
I don't mind early starts although half past three is a bit much, especially when not at home. So I'm sat here, socially mediating, coffee to my left, book at the ready for when I finish this and it's all very peaceful. I unloaded the dishwasher while waiting for the water to boil and set the table for breakfast so all's well with my conscience!
Yesterday was a funny old day, what with almost forgetting the governor's meeting plus everything else. I have responsibility for monitoring assessment and progress so need to have some sort of schedule for these meetings but at the last meeting we discussed strategies that were being put into place so this time we talked about how they were going as well as looking at progress data and how the Pupil Premium childen were coming on. We managed to fill a good hour with discussion. Then I want round to say Happy Easter to my ex-colleagues.
By the time I got home, sorted things out and packed, it was time for lunch and then I set off. It was a very pleasant, surprisingly traffic-light journey and how green everything has become in just four or five days!
We had a good talk with Malcolm, the minister. The more we talked, the more we remembered, so now he has plenty of material for his eulogy. Dad's got all the paperwork well in hand and everything is well organised. I'm not surprised - I know my Dad!
When Maria, the care assistant, came yesterday, after doing the usual bed changing she set to and carried most of Mum's clothes downstairs, bagging them all up for collection on Monday. Thanks to her, there's not very much more for me to do today so I should be able to make great inroads into the sewing room. Dad's more or less given me a free hand with that and Beth's sewing supplies should be well reinforced as a result.
I guess it is because of talking about Mum in such depth, but I dreamed about her for the first time since she died. It wasn't a bad dream but it was quirky as dreams usually are.
So - today I am doing an early morning shop, sorting out some washing and getting that done and then it's upstairs for a mega sort out. I bet I will need a shower after all that!
Have a great day, everyone, and enjoy any sunshine!
