I have a guest blog up on the interwebs!
A Girl Named Michael, a blog by a girl... named... Michael... has, in her own words, "stalked" me and challenged me to write how I met my partner. As a result, she's very kindly let me share on her blog the story of how my partner and I met. Do go check it out!!
I've just got home from Leeds, I've been at a Green Vision event where I did a Pecha Kucha presentation on Sustainability in Framework Agreements - you have 20 slides on a topic, and each slide automatically advances after 20 seconds so you only have a limited time to give your talk! It was a bit of a challenge but a great opportunity to try something a little different - thanks to the CKE for letting me talk!
We also held our first AGM for the G4C Yorkshire & Humber Committee. G4C (Generation For Change) is a construction best practice initiative for those new to the construction industry. I've been the G4C Co-ordinator in the region since 2010, and it was with some sadness that I've stepped down as Co-ordinator, but I think it's the time for someone new to take up the position - at least the grey in my beard suggests that anyway. Best wishes to the new Co-ordinator (Caroline from George Hurst & Sons) and I hope to be able to add value to the initiative as a committee member for the year ahead.
On the way home I realised that I hate it when my CD player in my car skips a bit, because instead of the song playing I can hear myself singing instead. And I really do not sound anywhere as much like Avril Lavigne as I imagine.
In other news, my son continues to get even better at IT. I left my tablet with YouTube open yesterday morning, he grabs it and starts watching a Spanish Minecraft video. I've been out-geeked.
