2010: The Review

Well. What a year ... and I've only written one post, or rather put up one video ... to mark one of the main events of the year.

So what has happened this year?

It's been a busy one. School had a tough year with a lot going on, not all good. We got a new headteacher over the summer, and things seem to be going well now. Still very busy though, but in a different way.

I applied for a couple of jobs and eventually got promoted to Head of Department. I'm enjoying the challenge although with the new arrangements at school I am still finding my feet somewhat!

Unfortunately these challenging times have affected my health so for much of the time I have been under the weather and on a variety of medications.

One of the highlights of the year was going to Hyde Park to see the Pope in September. That was fun, and the pupils quite enjoyed hearing about it too.

But the main events of the year were sad events. During the summer holidays, my Great Auntie and my Grandad died within the same week, and I then had two eulogies to deliver the following weeks, one in England, one in Scotland. Two wonderful, wonderful people who will be missed very much. So 2010 is dedicated to them.
