2 things...

One is urgent- I need ideas for an auction of promises. Deadline tomorrow. What can I offer?

The other is, what can I do with satsuma peel? I can't compost it as it's too acidic and we're eating so many, I really don't want to bin it. Do you have any ideas?
I have heard previously that dried citrus peel makes really good firelighters but as we don't have an open fire, that isn't much use to us.

I am possibly about to become a governor at Earlham High School (I will know more on Monday) and today underwent my first day of training. I came away thinking, "Why have I not done this before?" as I feel I have a lot to offer. Not in a conceited way, but I just recognised that I have built up a good bank of knowledge about schools over the years. It's nice to have finished studying and feel able to devote the time to something else and boy does Earlham need some support and guidance at the moment. I'm sure I'll update you as I go along.

Sometimes I make it and it isn't a hit,
Not because of the taste or the look,
Just because people don't fancy it.
I made one yesterday and took it to work:
And it was sorely missed here.
Sometimes I make cake and everyone wants a piece.
If I could guarantee that reaction everytime,
I'd make it more frequently.
