I put my name down to become a school governor and, to my surprise (because I don’t know a lot of other parents), I was voted in! I have yet to attend my first meetings or really understand what my responsibilities are. I hope I can make a difference over the 4 year term. We shall see!
Another person with new responsibilities is Martin. He has (finally) become a dad at, what, 41 years old? It sounds as if Julia had a bit of a tough time but she, and baby Lara, are doing fine now.
Here is a photo of the proud parents about 10 days after the birth when we went up to Reading on the way to take Matt back to Warwick.
