The Working Life of Christina McKelvie MSP
29th May

I'd like to tell you all about my week, but I'm afraid I can't!

I can tell you that I sneaked off with my sons for a break at the weekend, and that I saw the Commonwealth Games Legacy presentation on Tuesday - which was very impressive.

What I can't tell you is what we've been doing in Parliament because both of the Committees I sit on were considering final reports and they are, of course, completely confidential until they are published, so I can't tell you anything about them.  On top of that, I haven't been speaking in chamber this week, so there's nothing for me to report there, either (except that John Swinney was absolutely masterful in his command of his brief when delivering his statement on the Scottish Futures Trust).

Only one event outwith Parliamentary duties as well.  The SNP group of MSPs went out for dinner en masse on Wednesday (at Jackson's in Edinburgh).  It was an opportunity for all of us to sit and chat - an opportunity we don't get in the normal run of things - and to look back on the last year and how far we've come.  It was also an opportunity to look at the task ahead and consider how far we've yet to go.  I think that if we hadn't had the year behind us the task ahead would appear enormous.  What we know now, though, is that little changes have big effects in politics, and we're standing ready to take on the challenges ahead.

I promise there will be more next week - there's a lot more in my diary - and the reports get published!
