'It's Raining Again' but at least we haven't had the kind of weather causing chaos, destruction and distress in other parts of the country since before Christmas. No sooner do they see some improvement than another storm or band of rain arrives to add to the misery. The Government seem to be taking the line of 'Crisis, What Crisis'! If only there was a Supertramp track called. 'Too Little, Too Late'!!!
In our little bit of Staffordshire we've escaped the worst of the weather, and in the midst of the greyness we've had some fantastic sunny winter days. We try to make the most of these by going for long walks on Cannock Chase, or around the fields and canal which surround our house. However, wellies are the order of the day!
How much longer can this last?
On the retirement front it seems to be 'all systems go'. My colleagues have been informed as my job is being advertised, with interviews planned for March. My friend Barbara tells me that today is exactly half way through the school year. Today I did the investigations on the reflection of light for the last time ever, and after tomorrow making electromagnets will be a thing of the past. My citizenship lessons based on the 'Boy with Striped Pyjamas' are coming to an end. As usual, there will probably be tears.
It's all downhill from here...
