I did have one great thing happen today...

I saw an old colleague... Ruth Baldwin worked with me in Leeds for three years and is now the Executive Director of Children's Services in Oldham. She is an amazing woman and I really miss her direct approach, her energy and her can do attitude. She told me about Oldham's ambitious plans to transform their secondary estate using Building Schools for the Future and Academies. Clearly, this is a woman with a mission and I know that, as always, Ruth will make it happen for young people in Oldham.

Ruth sends her love to those she left behind.
