Those of you who regularly follow my blog will remember that about a year ago my youngest daughter Katie joined me for a day’s work experience – This was part of fulfilling part of the National Curriculum in year 10. Well recently my eldest daughter Emma joined me for a full day’s work. This was not to fulfill any requirements of the National Curriculum, but Emma was at a lose end after not having to sit her A-Levels (Due to the Covid situation), and did not want to be outdone by her sister. We had quite a varied day of work on the day and covered quite a bit of ground.
The photo is of her outside an address in Epping where we swept two open fires. Emma said that she really enjoyed the day, especially driving between the villages to get to the jobs, but she went on to say that she didn’t think chimney sweeping was the job for her – Far too dirty a job! It didn’t seem that long ago that I took Emma on her year 10 work experience, in those days I was still a DS in the Met Police working on the East London Criminal Finance Team SCD7. One of the things we did that day was to go to Snaresbrook Crown Court and obtain a Bank Production Order. The judge was very kind after the Court Clerk had told him why Emma was there, and she was able then to meet the judge in his chambers. He took the time and trouble to explain to Emma his role and responsibilities.
