A combination of a comment added to this post, and calls to boost the promotion of this petition has led me to think this blogroll might be good plan - it equally might not, but nothing ventured nothing gained - please spread the word and get as many home education blogs on this roll as possible, both to show that we are keeping on keeping on, and that we will continue to defend our rights.
Please scroll down for the blogroll :)

"I'm over here! Leave me alone!"

Whatever your personal politics, I think almost all home educators will have breathed a sigh of relief yesterday, that at least our freedom to home educate, in a way that suits our children best, looks safe under the new government.
Talk now seems to be turning to what would be the best course of action to take with this new government. Personally, I don't intend to take any. I intend to spend some time living, loving and learning, working, resting and playing, reclaiming as many of those many hours of freedom that were stolen from our lives last year as possible.
I know there are those who will/do disagree with me on this, who think that now is the time to make ourselves, and our cause, known to our MPs, to remind them why they should not try to introduce anything like this again, but  I don't think it is either wise, or necessary, to bring renewed attention to ourselves. I think keeping vigilant is important, I think we would be foolish not to, but I also think that shouting "I'm over here! Leave me alone!" is a pretty contradictory message to be calling out!
