  1. Have your say: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FVJCNZN
  2. My kid is one who is home today and they’ve been set a full day’s work. So at least that’s covered.
  3. I had a little Google. from the NASUWT site: https://www.nasuwt.org.uk/advice/conditions-of-service/teachers-working-hours/directed-time-england.html 1265 hours a year are allocated by the school. There is indeed an “any additional reasonable hours as necessary “ clause that’s in most salaried contracts in most sectors. Interestingly, there is a specific paragraph stating teachers aren’t supposed to be asked to work at lunchtime - it’s not part of their hours. Which means that if it’s been happening in these schools then the department has been getting away with this for years, and then blaming the teachers when they say no.
  4. That’s because you don’t have to rely on the will-they-won’t-they connection to a UK airport.
  5. Yes, it’s a terrible thing, the Church of England allowing divorcees into the Royal Family.
  6. Maybe the government should employ a proper number of dinner and support staff instead of cutting their numbers each year.
  7. Did you do it during the minute’s silence?
  8. I saw a motorbike on it in TT week, avoiding the queue of traffic on the bridge when the races were on. Quite clever really. It’s not like there were any cyclists to collide with.
  9. It’s going to be like Christmas Eve in Marksies on Sunday.
  10. Ah come on, who doesn’t love a Reply All with”Ok” as the response?

    TT 2022 ??

    Nonce is changing its meaning with da kidz. Either that or they don’t know what it meant before.

    TT 2022 ??

    I quite like that there’s nothing there. It’s never too crowded as a result. Kids can play, dogs can get walked, you can run, swim, go rockpooling. it’s a lovely big space. I take the kids to Port Erin and Peel too, but that’s when we’re being tourists.

    TT 2022 ??

    There was a nice row of old bikes on the Prom near Jak’s this afternoon, including one with a rag underneath catching oil drips 😂
  14. I saw this. If they know where she is, then the public no longer need to be involved. The agencies can do their jobs, and probably a whole lot better without the Power of Facebook.
  15. But green waste is only being collected in the summer months. Are we going to have weekly general collections back in the winter to make this true?
  16. Oh, that’s Shared Space, where it’s ok to run people over.
  17. Why not? It’s standard everywhere else except the TT course.
  18. Using this logic, would you put the reflective paint back on the roads that are used for the TT course? It’s not used at the moment because it’s too slippy.
