British Lions

What a great day! Even had to suspend a meeting for 15 minutes at 11am this morning while we watched the Wales Team, sorry British Lions squad being announced on Sky. Sky Go on the iPad is brilliant! It’s a good job all those attending my meeting liked rugby, or so they politely said.

This afternoon having left school early, don’t tell the Headmaster, I went to do what all good son’s do and cut my parents lawn. The reward being a Chinese takeaway. Unfortunately, the Chinese was not open, how dare they, so we had to had chicken curry and chips. Not the same but it filled the gap.

Time to rest now!


‘Tell me why I don’t like Mondays’

Great song by Boomtown Rats.

Why do Mondays always seems to last all day? Still only one and a half more days to the peak of the week and then it is a bank holiday weekend, yippee!

Why does grass grow in the spring and summer? Why can’t it just grow to a standard height and then stop.

Has spring finally started, although still very cold but good to see the yellow thing in the sky – very unusual in Wales.

Brains Dark

Last night was a magners drink night but it has nothing on tonight’s drink – a pint of Brains Dark – just like the old days!

Only one more day before the ‘Party’ at Cardiff City Stadium. Hope it is sunny and warm but then we live in Wales so that is unlikely!

Magners cider

What a week! Broadchurch reached it’s finale (I guessed the murderer clever me ), a day of interviews on Monday and meeting after meeting for the past two days.

We are now over the peak of the week and downhill to the weekend – Time for a Magners.


Why do people think that you need to answer an open question with an essay. One line or sometimes even one word, providing it is not yes or no, is sufficient. The problem with an essay answer is that when you have finished your answer the person asking the question has forgotten what they asked and almost definitely has no idea if you have given an appropriate answer to the question that they have forgotten!

Waffle is a strange word but most interviewees seem to have a passion for it.

Guess what I have been doing today?

It’s Saturday!

Three and a half hours of cleaning done, now for some lunch and then the City match.

Only one point needed for the Championship Title. C’mon the Bluebirds!

Then off to Parc y Scarlet to watch the Blues triumph over the Scarlets – ok maybe a little optimistic but who knows!

What a week!

Monday saw the opening of our new nursery building. Wow! Was the word most used by parents and children as they entered the building for the first time. Looking forward to opening the rest of the building for the infants at half term.

Tuesday saw Cardiff City get promotion to the Premiership. Fantastic and well deserved. And what a great night.

Wednesday was a day spent in London, no not at Mrs Thatcher’s funeral but at an ‘IT in Education’ conference. A long long day!

Thursday evening was the prefect dinner. As always the food was excellent, well done our catering staff.

Friday evening and all the troubles of the week, not covered above, are fixed.

Looking forward to watching Cardiff City on Sky TV tomorrow before travelling to Llanelli, with our good friends, for the Scarlets v Blues game.
