Well it is silly o clock here and I’m about to wake youngest daughter to take me to the station.  We’re all congregating in Birmingham – well Sutton Coldfield actually which I’m assured is a bit posh.  I don’t actually know what hotel we are going to but no doubt someone will tell me before I get there.  It is our organisation’s national conference so all colleagues from the UK and Northern Ireland will be there – should be good, though probably not a late night as I’m sure I’m not the only one up at 5 this morning. I’ll be posting onto Jaiku throughout the day so you can catch up on the exciting events on there.
