Nice random picture - the view out of my window at home! Ahhh. Never one to do things by halves, as well as turning 30 this weekend (on St David's day you know) and having an Ofsted subject inspection on Monday and Tuesday, I found myself in St James' Palace on Wednesday. I was acting as a Marshall for a Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Award presentation. It was great to see some of the young people I have helped through the Award pick up their certificates from the Prince. Over 6000 young people achieve Gold each year and the only thing that stops the Award expanding is a lack of adult volunteers! So why not give it a go ! Right, I'm off to have some wine and clear my diary.
