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
