    Lovely afternoon at @WHC_UHI graduation this afternoon, seeing all students graduate, especially our @WHC_Music students. Fantastic, perfectly pitched speech by @KateForbesMSP and moving & celebratory performances by NC / HNC Music students and our Rockschool pupils! #moiteil
    An amazing thing for this young girl to do. We don’t speak enough about periods - what is normal and what isn’t - as a result there’s a real lack of understanding, leading many women to suffer in silence, or simply feel too embarrassed to speak out or ask for help.#endometriosis twitter.com/uibhisteach/st…

    As a parent whose children have bothe been through GME, I have seen first hand how Gaelic Medium teachers work extra hard to create their own resources, and overcome so many hurdles in their way, including a desperate lack of teachers.

    Went to @VodafoneUK Inverness today for help with an account / discontinued handsets which are now dying. Rude, unhelpful service, obviously wished he was somewhere else. Would have bought new handsets but came away with nothing. Not one helpful answer or attempt to be polite.

    A wee bit late today after a long day travelling, but- A Song a Week #25 is now available for listening on my YouTube Channel - this week it’s Going Home. youtu.be/VN0GAjcbxmI
    Big sigh. Why exactly do people hate / feel threatened by Gaelic so much? Scottish people? It’s beyond me. Trolled since yesterday and I give up.
    It’s tiring reading all the anti- Gaelic posts, and mostly I skip over. This one made me think though. How about a list of reasons for sending a child to GME? 1. The amazing career opportunities available to Gaelic speakers... Who wants to go next? #thagàidhligbeo t.co/wqZ0jiMOH3
