This week...

Hello everyone - I've been really enjoying the moments I've had to pop over and visit those who are joining in the Thrill of What You Already Have - do look in my sidebar and go to see the posts, if you haven't already! January is turning out to be incredibly busy, which is odd given than my language school has very little work for me...This week is a particularly exciting one - Son 1 is doing his first work experience, and is delighted to have been accepted at Toulouse's Museum of Antiquities. He'll have some guided tours around the museum and the different sites, some interviews with different staff members, a few tasks, and some free time in the museum.

Have a great week yourselves.

Update: He's got a full timetable - the 'childcare' they referred to is merely sitting with the staff as they accession artefacts - he gets to join in and he really likes that! Today he saw some gold coins with the head of Nero and got to measure bells for an exhibition on musical instruments. Fantastic!

That sounds like a fab opportunity. My elder daughter did a 2 week placement in a primary school - she is now an English teacher at a high school in Cheshire, and my younger daughter did 2 weeks in the Pharmacy of the local hospital, as J works there. They both absolutely loved their work experience.
