Morning all. Manic day today involving transporting vehicles, Jack the Ripper presentations, and generally getting ready for spending the weekend in a smoke filled inflatable house. I've been promised they'll let me know if its sunny outside!

Today, pending any surprises, I'm deep cleaning all the vehicles (could we not have choosen smaller fire engines?!) attending a show (Bakewell Spectacular) at the weekend and getting the riot van (soon to be educational mobile museum) ready for its visit to Ford tomorrow to find out what it wrong with its engine (Hopefully not anything expensive! ) 

Then I've a begging letter to draft looking for support to get some resusi anns so we can teach first aid to visitors for free and my classroom to prepare for a Jack The Ripper presentation tomorrow. 

Aside from generally being awesome I think that's about most of my today list.

Morning all. Off to work shortly - really looking forward to my next day off. Only a few weeks to go and then that one day off is mine. All mine! (Will no doubt be doing chores).

Please send ginger biscuits and lashings of tea. I have some serious work to do! Anyone know any secret millionaire s who want to fund an education department?! Surely between us we know more than just Verdun.


Also mooching around the garden and I'm starting to think my generically unhappy garlic might be going rusty. Am I safe in thinking it doesn't render the crop inedible?

Evening all. I'm still at work: the traffic outside is awful there's no point my battling through that when I can sit on my laptop and carry on working for a few precious hours! (As you can tell its going well - waiting for some documents to print!)

Sheffield has seen snow hail and rain today. Glorious sunshine now which I am hoping might last long enough to keep the field we're at an event at (Bakewell) this weekend from becoming a big muddy puddle.


Have a lovely night all!

One for the ladies. ......

Gosh I feel really lazy I just put my bag in the boot (which you can't open by a button from the outside) when I'm in his lordships car. In my truck however there's no chance of you leaning in an open window!

Morning all.  Well my day off was fun - now to hope my work to do list actually goes down this week. If it gets much longer I'll need another notepad.

Thank you Dove.


Very tired this evening. Might be an early night!

Does anyone know of any fun recipes for rhubarb?  Last year I rested the rhubarb completely not knowing its history but this year it would be nice to taste it!

Only just fit enough to potter about and missed the talk by Rob Allotment chappie. At least it means I've more money for plants!
