I have been putting this off for some time now, but it seems the moment has come.
For a number of years, I have been a Governor: first at the special school, and now at our Catholic Primary. Though I have really enjoyed being part of a school governing body, it's not my vocation.
Marriage and family life is.
It has become increasingly difficult to find the time to give to governance, without compromising that which needs to be given to the family.
So, I think I've got to make that phonecall...
Please say a prayer for me.
