On Thursday 13th June, I was told that the contract to my current job was finishing at the end of this month. Maybe, the whole thing was a bit too good to be true. You don’t generally find that many jobs, doing something you love, in hours that fit around the school run but the work was amazing while it lasted.

For this weeks blog post I drew a blank. I couldn’t think of anything to write about. I thought about updating my accounting blogs and putting a link to them all but then didn’t.

For online safety, obviously it wasn’t covered or word for word what to say to your child but it did give you ideas on where to start and that it’s never too late to start talking about it. This was based on going to an online safety conference and hearing people talk about it and what it was that they wished their parents had said to them.

Ok, I admit, I’m a bit of a course junkie, especially when
it comes to online courses as they are sooo flexible.
However, on Wednesday 3rd April 2019, I attended the first day
of the short story writing course in Leicester. It was a two hour course and it

physically going to a classroom and meeting other people.
