Just read the post on the bbc children in need thing. I was really looking forward to doing this but as a teacher I will not be able to get the time off work so cannot get there for 12. To other teachers on this forum (and others!) has this happened to you before - unable to do something due to not being able to take time off!! It has caused problems several times for me. E.g. this years nationals, the rest of the band left early friday morning and obviously we could not leave till 4. Thank god for cheap airline tickets (and edinburgh airport being fairly close to dundee - well kirkcaldy where we were staying!!!!) otherwise we would have had problems or not arrived until early hours of saturday morning.
