It’s turning out to be another one of those weeks! ?Last night I spoke at our monthly KLCK bloggers network meeting in Portlaoise on ‘Blogging for E-commerce’ which I thoroughly enjoyed and all the participants joined in with plenty of questions and discussion.
We got the news yesterday that our school website (that I helped set up in early Spring and trained the teachers in updating it and writing blog posts) designed by the very talented Maura McDonnell is in the finals of the Irish Web Awards for the ‘Best Education and Third Level website’ – we’re up against 5 third level websites so it is a great achievement and I am so so chuffed. Do pop over to the Wandesforde School website and leave a comment with your congratulations, the teachers will be delighted 🙂
I usually read 2 chapters of a Harry Potter book to the children most evenings. We’re on the third one now, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and we’d decided we’d take a break from Potter after this one and read another author. I started reading this evening at about 6.30 with just over 100 pages to go and 3 hours later I finished at 9.40! ?The children were at the edge of their seats and it was lovely to see them so enthralled. So was I! ?I had deliberately never read Potter before, deciding I would leave it until I had kids and they were old enough to enjoy it. ?I was nearly hoarse when I finished and Will wants to start the 4th book tomorrow.
Poor old Sam had the snip done over 2 weeks ago (to cure him of his wanderings) and it seems to have done the trick. We haven’t had time to bring him back to the vet to get the stitches out and I’d probably have to drag him in there so I think we’ll just have to take them out ourselves. All part of a day’s work I guess!
I actually feel really hyper – I don’t know whether it is the news about the website or Harry Potter that has caused it!
