As the babies' mums are all teachers, they work eight until five; and every evening I have had a governors' meeting - two back-to-back on Thursday. Cancel supper. I've attended a termly briefing at County Hall, hosted a governors' association meeting and chaired a finance committee.
I've collated our parents' survey results, started the annual report and dealt with a mountain of correspondence. Wearing my other hat I have harried careers advisers about provision for autistic children and prepared a press release for Autism Awareness Week. My youngest son has GCSE revision fever, Manchester United had to replay their semi-final, Europe is at war and on Tuesday it snowed.
A house of Commons Select Committee wants information on governors' workload. I'd love to help but I simply haven't the time.
