Interesting times have been experienced recently. I’ve failed again to get deputy headship, someone in the family died, I ran a mountain marathon but have been slacking on the milage front, failing to complete the 100 mile ultra marathon that I’d set myself as a goal due to injury, so I’ve been feeling a bit of an underachiever. Getting through the NPQH gateway and heading to the induction was more than a let down, and I left uninspired. Of course, it isn’t the first time that I have questioned what on earth I’m doing and, perhaps, being a little honest here may be naive and foolish. I say none of these things to tug on your heart strings, I am blessed and have a life of relative ease. Since taking on safeguarding how lucky I am has been hammered home.
