days 22 and 23 Gift tags and radio and TV!

This has been a very exciting week, dear readers! And for reasons I shall discuss tomorrow, it shouldn't have been so at all!

We were interviewed at 8.40 am on Good Morning, Ulster, and then all appeared on BBC1 Newsline at 1.30pm. Our road safety campaigning group- three walking buses coming down the road with 200 of our pupils and their parents. Three count stations, media coverage, our local Stormont MLA- bless you, Alastair Ross, and sunshine for the first time all week. I don't believe in coincidence!

Lots of gift tag making for teachers just now, for two establishments. Must get back to the ribbon. If you'd like to hear a squeaky middle aged woman ranting in the voice of an irate 8 year old, move the Radio Ulster timer on to 2:05:30....

You have all the verve needed for such a good cause. I looked it up and I applaud you. How nice of the Father to deliver lovely weather, smiling on you so.

Ecxellent that you are making your voice heard and supporting your cause so strongly. When I listened to your radio clip I was surprised by the number of disruptive events going on in your part of the world that were reeled off. I expect you are all used to these goings on but by comparison, our morning news is full of trivia like potholes in surrey, possible hosepipe ban etc! So I would imagine that getting your cause mentioned in your neck of the woods must have been that bit more challenging. Good for you! Bettyx
