When My daughter was about 5 yrs old she filled in a crossword. Every square contained a very neat squiggle.
I am the youngest of three sisters who all resemble each other, but my sister Vera and I are always being mistaken for each other, although I think I get taken for her more than she does for me. She must have more acquaintances than me. lol
My daughter DID NOT want to go to school and it was hard work and took half an hour before I could get her through the gates. When I went to collect her she kept talking about Mr Marshall. “Who is he” I asked “Your teacher?” “No” she replied scornfully “He’s the head monster”
Just got back from Greece,. Stayed at Christina Studios in Laganas.The room was ok but the pool wasn’t very clean and the food was poor quality for the price. I liked the people. They were friendly without being pushy like the turks. Enjoyed a swim in the med, a first for me. Might go back to Greece one day but not to Zante.
I was playing with this girl (1950’s) and I showed her a shilling(a lot of money for a kid in those days) I’d got for my birthday I think. Anyway she said why dont we play shops. You be mother and send me to the shops with the shilling. So I did. Needless to say I never saw either of them again.
When I was a 4 year old kid in Sheffield our black cat went missing. A few days later when a scrawny moggie walked into the house my mother said here’s our Sotty back. But I wouldn’t have it. That’s not him I said. My mother explained that the cat had probably been trapped and thats why he was so thin and dirty. 2 days later another cat strolled onto the house. Thats our Sooty I said immediately.
Which just goes to show your kids arn’t as daft as you think.
