    Well isn’t technology wonderful? Today I’ve communicated with the staff by text, with the pupils in the blog, with the site foreman by mobile phone, with the architect and the Hartshead school principal by email, all from the comfort of my mobile office (my laptop).
    Maybe I’ll just stay at home and run the school from here.
