(Collegiate Library Wellbeing Walk – April 2019. Photo courtesy of Lisa Glossop 2019).
Well, this is just a quick updating post on the subject of Chartership. Yes, it’s still going, no, I havent pressed the button yet. 😦 Lots of things have been not exactly getting in the way, but stifling progress somewhat, including several holidays all together and a job interview (which I didnt get, but am happy with my performance).
The above photo is not one of the reasons for lack of progress, but it is meant to illustrate that, no matter how much we strive, we still need time to play. Our recent Collegiate Library Wellbeing Walk (which we try to do on at least a monthly basis) took us past a children’s playground (not inhabited at time of wandering) and we couldnt resist having a little play, particularly, as you see, on the ropes. Well, and why not? My climbing experience stood me in good stead in this activity, although it does actually look like I am a lot further off the floor than I actually was (me, shorty!).
Anyway, we had great fun and are planning to relive the experience in the next few weeks – just got to find somewhere to have a walk to (possibly an allotment!). So that’s progress.
Back to the Chartership. I keep getting asked when I am pushing the button, for, I suspect, the sole reason of a visit to the local watering establishment. My plan is to finish off the little nitty bitty jobs that need doing this week (ie tomorrow) and then get one last look from my mentor, fill in the mentor completion form and then press the button next week! Given that I have an almost-full diary, this could be somewhat tricky…but I shall make a Herculean effort to ensure I do it!
I’ve also got a visit to that Brum to look forward to next week, oh joy…but for a nice reason. A teachmeet at Aston Uni on Wellbeing activities in Libraries. So that’ll be nice and I might get some inspirations for our own Teachmeets too.
So, there’s the plan. Make sure I stick to it and this time next week…watch this space…
