A fine Spring!

I have been out and about a lot this week with planning meetings, Preparation  for KS4 lessons, Lend Lease Project finals and presentations and, oh yes, my meeting with the astronaut Paolo Nespoli today at Westfield. All of which I shall blog about next week when I have some photos – so hang on in there.

Today I wanted to make a comment about the attractive April ‘showers’ we have been experiencing recently. It varies (but not much) between blazing sunshine and torrential, flooding, drain cover-lifting rain. That doesn’t stop until at least half an hour after you needed to have got out of the car to attend a meeting. I have taken to carrying an umbrella, which is unheard of for me. Challenging times indeed.

But it does bring out the very thing I find the most endearing about the community in and around Newham. The sense of humour and spirit of just getting on with it. Whilst I was in John Lewis today I was examining their huge range of Olympic Games pin badges that they have on sale – 365 different ones to be precise. Some of which were definitely tongue-in-cheek, like the Olympic pin representing the good old English fry up, cream tea and, most appropriate, rain cloud, lightning and umbrella.

We may not have the best weather here in Britain. But it will not get us down!
