It is that time of the term/year where we are in the midst of the flurry of the last weeks of activities. I envy those of you who have closed your libraries and already completed stocktake. I still have three classes to take before the end of tomorrow, and stocktake is next week's delight to look forward to. However, we also have our Hargest Library Xmas Party to look forward to next Thursday as well, which is a really lovely way to say goodbye to 2010.
If you're anything like me, you are now hanging out for a long-anticipated summer break and I would just like to take this opportunity to congratulate you all for getting to the end of what, I'm sure has been an exceptionally busy year. I hope you are planning to spend at least part of your holiday time doing something that makes you happy and replensishes your soul so that you can face 2011 with all the vigour and enthusiasm you are all known for!
For myself, I am looking forward to spending lots of time with my family, especially my boys, doing some exploring of our lovely Southern hillsides, and of course, catching up on reading some of those books that I just haven't got to this year.
I want to say a big, heartfelt thank you to those of you who toil away on SLANZA National Executive with me. It is fantastic to have such an awesome team to work with. Your talents, ideas and enthusiasm constantly amaze me!
I look forward to hearing how everyone's summer has been when we're all back on deck for Term 1, 2011!
