The 21st June has indeed been a long day! The lesson observations and interviewing started at 9am this morning, and I left the school at 6.30pm tonight so even if the day had been gloriously sunny and bright, I wouldn't have seen it anyway, but since it rained pretty much all day I didn't miss much....
We have had a productive day, and thank goodness we were able to make some appointments - I am so relieved. One of the new teachers is a very bright and bubbly student who should be an NQT in September, and she looks about 14, but she taught a really inspiring lesson and totally captured the children's attention.
Tonight we have had a church meeting and discussed how we are going to start raising this £600 a month. We agree that it is going to be a challenge, and we are going to do our best to get somewhere towards the target. An event a month is going to have to be the aim, and we are going to have to work hard to do that.
I would like to compile a little recipe booklet which we can sell at local events as well as selling online as an e-book, so I am going to start thinking about an angle to theme the recipes on and what to call it. If YOU have any recipes you would allow me to include, I would be very grateful, and I would be glad to include the web address of your blog, if you have one, as well as your name as contributor. All ideas on themes also welcome - if you are a cookbook freak like me, what sort of cook books appeal to you? For me, it is a toss up between a good cake and bake book, and a collection of cheap family meals for everyday.
