I’m off to Reading after I’ve taken the kids to school, hand delivered a series of forms to the secondary school that my son will be starting in September and delivered my work for INSIGHT.

Then back home for the afternoon school run before going back out to Reading for the Business Preview at 5:30 and the Private View after that.
Is it too much?
I’ll let you know.
