A few things that have been going on over the last couple of weeks ...
It snowed. Again. This has been the longest winter I can remember. March was ridiculously cold and April has started the same way. There were even snow flurries again yesterday. I am so ready for it to feel like spring. Easter in winter just feels all wrong!
Rose played her violin in a school concert. (Please note that this is not an indication of precocious musical talent. She is very much at the beginner stage!)
Various major things have been going on at work. This year is our centenary and there are a number of related events throughout the year, including exhibitions in local museums. The first opened in a town in the south of the county a couple of weeks ago. There are also going to be a number of staff changes and it looks as though I will be continuing to work full time instead of going back to part time in July as I anticipated.
We managed to get outside for a while at the weekend despite the weather, though we weren't out for long before Rose's insistence that she didn't need a winter coat drove us back to the car with a frozen small person.
Otherwise, life carries on as normal with work and school. Helen will be done with school completely in a couple of months and is job hunting - she is looking for a media based apprenticeship in London. She finished her photography A level last week with an exam piece involving technical wizardry way out of my league - time lapse photography edited into 3D images. Apparently even her teacher didn't think it could be done! Marie is ploughing through GCSE coursework and controlled assessments. Rose has decided numeracy (maths) is her favourite subject at school. I am ploughing on with my archive course, which I now just want to get finished. I start the final module in May and will be done in September.
