preschool, go home and recycling

A kind-of ad-hoc entry for today.. the previous few days have been fairly intensive at work; in fact, they were my last as a supervisor, since I'm going back to being a specialist for six months on Tuesday.

It's been something of an unusual day - Beth and I both volunteered to help out at Eleanor's pre-school today. They like to have parents involved in the session, but one of the members of staff was away, so Beth was filling in for them.

I had a great time, doing my full range of silly voices (although I'll never really match Kenneth Williams in his days of Jackanory!) while reading stories, and being asked by the cheeky staff to lead the children in singing songs (I took requests, which included "Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer") while they set up the sports day equipment. To be honest, the whole morning was made easier by the fact that there really isn't a bad little'un among them, and they all seem to get on really well. Raynham Way Pre-school is definitely one of the best in Luton!

This evening, after collecting a fluorescent tube and fitting for the loft from a kind freecycler, I harvested another couple of tubs of lettuce, and made a start on the tedious job of thinning out the carrots. So many little bits and pieces to do... I still haven't made a proper list!

Listening to...
As I type, I'm listening to the Go Home Productions 6 Music Comic Relief mix which is available for a limited time at their MP3 page. I discovered this after getting the wonderful "Pinnochiohead" song stuck in my head (Disney mashed up with Radiohead? Wonderful!).

Well, it's a busy day tomorrow - Beth's going into London for IVF in the morning, and I'm going for a nightshift starting at 10pm, covering for a colleague who can't make it. I'll take the opportunity to move the contents of my desk, since I'm starting my new/old job on Tuesday.

Luton events..
On the 2nd of June, Luton's recycling centre is having an Recycling Open Day, which sounds like a brilliant idea.

Speaking of which, it was interesting to read on the front cover of the Herald and Post that - after going into some anecdotal detail (!?) of the national coverage of reported mistreatment of staff at Pratts Bananas in Luton - the company offer the public an opportunity to visit the site... I wonder how many folk will take it up (especially since it doesn't appear that they even have a public-facing website...)
