Its been a long time

I haven't posted for 6 months, possibly because I seem to have complicated my life with two homes and a busy job with two strands, there seem to be only so many things even a woman can think about at once.
I haven't been getting fitter and losing weight, I haven't done as much knitting or taken as many  photographs as usual over the past 6 months.

But I have, this week passed a big birthday threshold, which means if I had stayed in teaching I could have taken my pension. But I didn't. And I do enjoy my job, so no regrets......

Until yesterday when Mr Gove's crazy ideas of harking back to a golden age of grammar schools and secondary moderns, pigeon holing people into the best and the rest ....... did make me wonder what I am doing .....................

I don't have the eloquence to say what I think but this blog post by a committed physics teacher of my acquaintance is worth a read.
