    The jewellers next door is being converted into an undertakers. Guess that now puts us at the dead centre of town.

    Social media is being routinely monitored for intel.

    I can't say any more - unless you know the correct code phrase...

    I got my 25 year service award thing three weeks ago.

    This week, I'm told I need to do a 'safety' module. I've done the safeguarding module (it's even on Compass, apparently it's good till 07 Jan 2020 - which I think is in three months time. I know my memory isn't great but...) I only mention it, because it's not that safety module, there must be another one - the absence of which means - I'm a complete liability.

    Hmmm...

    Congrats. I think I should have one of those...if my compass record was accurate. What's 5 years between friends?

    Hmmm indeed! To be honest, I didn't follow that at all.

    My brain is addled. The twin pronged attack of too many years involvement and too many 'training' modules in a 48 hour period.

    I meant to say, since I'd already done the safeguarding module, what ever other safety module I needed to do - wasn't that one. It was the mandatory (hate that word) on-going safety training.

    I kid you not, at the end of it, if you don't answer enough of the questions correctly (and it keeps count, unlike the rest of the training) it says - and I quote; 'Less than two of your answers were correct so unfortunately that means you didn't manage to get a medal...'

    You have to go back to the beginning and start again.

    I thought it was supposed to be adult training.

    Handy tip...when it says...

    "POR is more what you would call "guidelines" than actual rules" the answer they want is "disagree".

    "is sitting on top of the kit in the back of a lorry ok?" the answer they want is not "well it was ok when I was a scout"

    To be honest, and we should be honest shouldn't we? It feels to me like you're coming back from the living in the wilds and now everything looks slightly different, and your DC is trying to get you a shower, a shave and a decent haircut. I hope the reintegration doesn't carry on being painful for too long.

    So last night we were doing part of the disability awareness badge, and we had them creating works of art without the use of their hands. I suggested they could use their mouth or their feet to hold pencils etc. Some where reasonably inventive and fashioned make shift prosthesis by wrapping their neckers round their wrist so they could wedge their pencil in that - which was slightly out of what I was intending but it was good problem solving so we let it go. Half way through the session one of my assistants wanders over to me. "You know that lad at the back - what's his name" "You mean Sid" (not actually his name but for this purpose he shall be known as Sid) "Yes that's the one - he's got his pencil wedged between his butt cheeks, I didn't know what to say so I just walked away". Cue me quickly thinking through the risk assessment implications!

    (I should point out that everyone remained appropriately clothed at all times - a few socks removed but nothing more drastic).

    Kids!
    Does anyone know what's going on?
