It is Friday 17th March. Last week’s post was foggy as the last few days have been, but today the sun shines. First reason to welcome the sun is to celebrate my mother in law’s birthday today – 95, a very good reason to celebrate. Lunch out later as a family, those that are here in Dorset.
In the last few days news that the next art printing order will be ready to collect next week. More details about that on http://AndyKnillArt.wordpress.com where I am onto my second weekly newsletter.
Too many friends are leaving teaching from both the classroom and leadership and a fear that many more will too with the impending funding dilemma. When will we start to value the individuals (pupils / students) who will lead in the future? What value a teacher with experience?
Each day has offered a few walks taking in the wildlife and shoots on the plants, watching the sheep and birds out on Swyre Head and Houns Tout. Whenever we venture out the changing views of Corfe Castle, a great privilege to live near and sketch at the other morning.
Walks at Swanage and Studland Bay. A key aspect of our new life is definitely taking in the fresh air on offer.
Greetings to friends celebrating their patron saint St Patrick (Noeleen please note) and the rest looking for a reason to raise a glass.
Wishing all my readers a great day and a weekend where some time at least is used for what you choose.
