Well it has been quite a 12 months. My partner of 12years left me almost 12 months ago. She is now taking my daughter to another country (but tells me we will make it work) Have an absolute nightmare of a HT and was thinking I was over the worst of it. Well I am as now I have just secured an Acting HT's role (and avoid going to a job I was starting to hate) Writing a novel which is currently 10,000 words long and feeling better than I have done in ages. Sometimes you need a sharp *** with a stick to get yourself moving.
