Today was the end of What Do You Think? (WDYT?) and the beginning of General Assembly. At WDYT? this morning we had a look through the report of the Youth And Children’s Work Committee and had a mock debate to see how the General Assembly works. A coat stand was employed as the microphone and it was amazing to see how quickly people started treating it like a real mic, standing close and holding on to it as a comfort blanket!
After lunch we had a ‘break’ until General Assembly started at 3.30pm. The break included creating a display of youth and children’s work and making sure everyone got checked back in and registered and stuff.
I decided it was my duty to make sure JB and LR got some well deserved time off so they were dragged kicking and screaming to the nearest golf course for 18 holes. We played at Silveknowes on the banks of the River Forth and somehow managed to escape the rain which was falling all around us. A good time was had by all I think.
Tomorrow sees the Assembly start in earnest with Youth & Children’s Work tomorrow morning. I’m not allowed in the hall so I’ll be hanging out in the foyer watching the live feed on TV. The most important thing for consideration tomorrow is my job title so check back to see it we get something shorter than Youth And Children’s Work Development Officer. I do hope so. That one doesn’t fit on forms!
T in the Park (Scotland’s amazing music festival) is also on this weekend so I’ll be watching/listening/wishing I was there too. It’s online and on TV & Radio. Feeder are on now rocking up a storm.
