This year as I've gone part time my role at school has changed to one focused on reading intervention as a large part of this is delivering specialist literacy interventions. Last week I had my first observation in years, from the Head, and I was teaching my most needy year 6 group. I got my feedback on Friday and my lesson has been graded as Outstanding! I am feeling very chuffed with myself.

On another note I mentioned a couple of months ago that I was starting a monthly craft stall selling my origami flowers and card. This is also going very well, I have stalls at two larger Christmas fairs in Essex coming out, have been showcased by a UK craft fairs group I've joined, going to be featured (ad) in a South East based magazine's upcoming Arts and Crafts feature and even have my own website.

So as I said, for a day or two I'm feeling chuffed with myself.

    Oh I think you can allow yourself more than a day or two to feel chuffed. After all the difficulties in your professional life over the past year or so this validation is doubly precious I imagine, and for your crafting to be so well received as well is the icing on the cake. Thoroughly well deserved after all your efforts.

    Thank you, you are right in that it means much more to me as it's so good to know I'm still good at something and that professionally I still have something positive to offer.
