Considering collections, communicating, clutter

I can’t resist a little alliteration. This week’s title comes from Louise Atkinson’s post about considering her work for her PhD and describing her practice as an artist collector; Kevin McGinley’s contribution to the new Taysidehealth blog on communication between members of a family when one of them needs to stay in hospital and how digital technology can help; and Karen Hart has been decluttering again, and thinking as she sifted through her collection of books.

The Good Practice Exchange at the Wales Audit Office starts a series about the winners and those nominated in the All Wales Continuous Improvement Community Awards with one about the Ministry of Justice’s Shared Services and why they won the ‘Delivering Results – Doing it Better’ category.

Shona Robison, Cabinet Secretary for Health, Wellbeing and Sport in the Scottish Government, looks back on 2014 and forward to 2015 on the Ayrshirehealth blog.

Finally, the feature photo for this week’s summaries is one of my own photos of young foxes in my garden but I do recommend having a look at Mark Braggins’ much better photographs of foxes in his post this week. My favourite was the fox doing an excellent impression of a bird. I have never seen anything like it before!

Thank you very much for sharing news of last week’s summary. Soon I will start sending out a brief (possibly extremely brief) weekly newsletter to those who sign up for our new newsletter service so you don’t miss our weekly summary. Subscribe via this link (and I apologise for the Recaptcha but the blog does attract spam).

Keep warm in the chilly weather this week (if you’re in the UK).
