Mum and Dad gave David2 and Evan4 sunglasses from Bali for their birthday presents. David2 came out of his room last night and said, “Hey Mum! How ‘rock star’ do I look?”
Personally, I think it’s frightening that anyone as youthful and dewy as me can have a child who looks like this.
I was doing a spot of marking…. not very much…. and I came across these two gems from the year 9 grammar test.
They had to define the difference between a friend and a companion. The companion part was done well, but then two kids wrote these:
* A friend is Ms Frogdancer. 🙂
*A friend is some random that you add on Facebook.
I’ve been spending most of my days knitting. Suse put me onto a little all in one cardi and I knitted it nearly up to the second arm. Took quite a while, because I was knitting two other things (as well as 3 hats) as well. I read a blog post from Stacey about how she unpicked hers twice.
“Ha!” I thought smugly. “I’LL never have to do that!” (All the while pushing down the uneasy thought that the armhole I’d already created was rather tight….)
Yep. You guessed it. I unpicked it all last week and I’ve spent a week modifying the pattern and then single-mindedly crippling my hands to get back to where I’d been before. (Got there at 3.15pm yesterday!! Yay! Now I’m back to being worried that I might not have enough wool. )
Today is Thursday in the first week of the holidays.
I’ve done NOTHING….
Why do I do nothing every.single.time?
