Spring in sight??

It’s been a while since my last musings but a lot of water has passed under the bridge since then!

In one week, I had Ofsfed at school, found out that for now my job is safe and Christina also had a three day inspection at the hospital from the CQC. Let’s just say that the few days we had away in the van in York were much needed and well enjoyed even if we did spend it with this pair of……
