Such a mix of weather so far this month, but that's March for you!
By now the weather had turned back to being cold and wintry.
We had several wild and exciting flurries of snow, but only a sprinkling actually lay.
Earlier this week N and I visited the loch.
The sheet music behind the program in the photo is for our next concert; an extra one accompanying a choir in performing Mozart's Requiem. I've not played it before but have been warned it's hard work, especially as we'll be doing it with a very small orchestra and there'll be only one bass (me!).
While we are around the school it seems apt to mention that I finally got the results of my second interview. Now that I have the decision I am prepared to disclose what it was all about! One of the reasons I have had little blogging time is that since October I have been a parent helper at A's school for two afternoons a week as well as teaching a recorder group at the school. In November I applied to do a primary PGDE. (A PGDE is the Scottish equivalent of the English, Welsh and Northern Irish PGCE. PGDE stands for Professional Graduate Diploma in Education, PGCE stands for PostGraduate Certificate of Education, both are one year university courses which lead to successful students becoming qualified to teach in schools.) I heard earlier this week that I have been successful in obtaining a place; needless to say I am very pleased! So, big changes are ahead, a new chapter begins... I know it will involve lots of work, my spare time will become non-existent and I will be joining those who have to cope with childcare juggling, but I am very much looking forward to it. However, more on this another time, now I have to go and collect N from nursery...
