President’s Day – mid-February all ready!

February 15, 2010

Bank Holiday weekend… and its already Monday! The Winterguard Festival at Will’s school Saturday consumed the day – we washed 50 potatoes to get 40 nice sized jacket potatoes, that had to be dried, wrapped in silver foil and cooked for almost 2 hours. Fortunately Geraint suggested we load up a cold oven to we didn’t get burnt loading it up – what a brilliant man.

From 3 – 7.30pm I helped in the concessions area along with several devoted mothers and fathers who had been there for the day cooking and serving food and collecting the money. My four hour stint was nothing. I must also mention the boys and girls from the music dept. who helped serve the concessions. The system worked well with only a few hiccups. I hope the participants enjoyed themselves.

Now for my monthly goals… where am I?
