I can't believe its been almost a year since my last newsletter, it's been that busy. Business has been moving forward and I have a wonderful person working part-time for me who organises events. I've also become a part time distributor for Utility Warehouse helping people and businesses to save money. Hoorah! I started physical training in January and I'm much fitter and have lost 3 stones, fill much better. : )
John has now started his A levels, he got 16.5(!) GCSEs and is now doing Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Biology and Chemistry. He's going up to Bristol Uni every Wedsday with another guy for some special lessons. He still wants to go to Cambridge but I just don't know what to do about paying for it all. : (
Lizzie is as wonderful as ever, 14 now and in Y9 she's thinking about her future. She says she'd like to work with folks in deprived areas in Africa in some medical capacity so she's doing the sciences and French. She's on her Grade 4 for Piano and singing is on the back burner.
James is James, Y6 now. In the scouts, very excited over dungeons and dragons, he's a dungeon master and runs a club at school! He's doing his Grade 3 keyboard.
Fiona completed her, "Return to Nursing" course in October, but has remained a parent support advisor although she's planning to do more work in hospitals to keep her hand in. She is wonderful and so patient with me. We had to do our wills again recently along with life insurance etc. Very salutory experience once again, I just don't know what I'd do without her, but it's more likely that I'll go first!
Colleagues, it's the cusp of that special season, I wish you all well, and never underestimate the work you do. Or if you have retired, well done! Children will remember, think and talk about you until they grow old and tell their grand children about you as well. I wish you all the best!
