Good morning, everyone. It's dismal here at the moment and not because the clocks have gone forward. Yesterday, after rain in the morning, we had afternoon sunshine which was really nice. Maybe it will cheer up later on today too. Hoping so, anyway.
I did the SET online class yesterday morning and, thankfully, there were no issues with the connection.
I bit the bullet and did that online training. It was for governors so wasn't concerned with individual cases, which was a relief, but to do with strategic leadership rather than 'operational' management. It was heavy though, hard on the old brain cells and I was shattered by the time I finished. It took around four and a half hours plus a meal break and I could have split it into chunks but once started I just wanted to get it all done in one day.
I used to be able to take in all that sort of stuff pretty quickly but not nowadays. The language was very accessible but I did have to re-read several parts to totally understand it
I still have a load of reading around (The 'Keeping Children Safe In Education' thingy for a start and also various school policies) but I've done the necessary part so, if OFSTED < spit > did come a-calling, it's OK.
But, oh, those acronyms! Why is education so fraught with acronyms?
So I spent the rest of the day chilling rather than doing anything more worthy!
Today is, I hope, the day I do what I'd planned yesterday. Fingers crossed. If the weather improves, I have a load of stuff that I need to move temporarily from shed to garage until the garden room is completed and then it can all go back into the new storage in the garden room. It's not hard or heavy but not something to do in the rain.
But for now, I will finish off my social media responsibilities and then I'm going to empty the dishwasher, prepare the veg for today and then chill with another coffee. A very nice start to a Sunday.
Take care, stay safe and warm, everyone, and have a lovely day. xx
I can't wait to see photos of the garden room when it's all finished. It'll be a lovely place for you to relax.ReplyDelete
It will be but you'll need to be patient - it will be in the Autumn at some point. xxDelete
I think you earned your chilling time after completing the online training.ReplyDelete
We have rain here so I'm staying at home today ... batch cooking mainly after my Tesco delivery yesterday, but will fit in some crochet and piano as well. Hope you enjoy your day too, Joy. xx
I felt I did, definitely. A shame about the cheese and salad cream sarnie I wolfed down before I pulled myself up but there you go.Delete
It's still raining here, I think, but it does look a bit brighter so fingers crossed. Your day sounds lovely. xx
Well done on completing your online training. I find that sort of thing can be very draining, but at least it is out of the way now. XxReplyDelete
Yes, it was draining but, as you say, done now and I am legal! Woo hoo. xxDelete
We're looking after Arthur while Susannah goes to London to pick up Frankie. He and Gilbert play noisily together and exhaust themselves. Roxy watches and grumbles , , , xReplyDelete
lol - it sounds a lot of fun. xxDelete
Good for you ticking the online training box. I often find myself a little melancholy on a Sunday , think for me that it goes back to childhood when on a Sunday afternoon my heart would sink at the idea of Monday and school!ReplyDelete

Aw - that's very understandable, I guess. Easier when the sun is shining. xxDelete
Well done on tackling the online training. I'm sure once you got started it became important to finish in a timely fashion. That's what I find with chores like that. My big bugbear is my Income Tax return which I often put off to the last minute!ReplyDelete
That's exactly how I felt, Chris. I just wanted to get it done really. Now it is sorted, I feel so much easier. xxDelete
Glad you managed to do the online training. Hope you had an enjoyable day and feel ready to tackle Monday!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Sharon. It was a lovely, restful Sunday. xxDelete
