When I left the Council in July, it was my intention to have a gap year. My good friend, Carol, said I would be back at work within six months. Well, she was right and I've got another job.

I am delighted to be the Project Co-ordinator for Forth Valley, for the Royal Highland Education Trust www.rhet.org.uk. The tagline for RHET is "taking the classroom into the countryside" and its aim is to reconnect children with food, farming and the countryside by organising school visits to farms and farmer visits to schools, along with specific projects like "Count and Grow" with the Clydesdale Bank and Farmhouse Breakfast Week with Tesco and the Home Grown Cereals Authority.

As you might expect, I'm a bit out of my comfort zone, after 13 years in my previous job, but I'm sure I'll soon get to grips with it. I'm fortunate to have good support from the HQ at Ingliston and from the Forth Valley Countryside Initiative and the other Co-ordinators are a nice bunch.

My to do list is ever growing - the more I learn, the less I know, so I'm having a RHET day tomorrow - office door closed, no dogs, no kittens, no Felix, just head down and work, work, work. I'm almost hoping it's raining!
