Parents Evening

Lastnight was Parents Evening for The Peacemaker.

I was not particularly hopeful, mainly due to the iPod Touch which both she and The Fixer received at Christmas, and which have transformed them both into a type of mummified zombie, unable to hold a conversation, complete homework assignments or get to school on time.

However, I must admit to being pleasantly surprised by her teachers' reports.

Well, most of them.

There was a slightly embarrassing moment with the History teacher. Apparently, they have been learning about the Pilgrim Fathers. The teacher said that the journey on The Mayflower had been a long one, and wondered how they had kept themselves entertained during the voyage.

The Peacemaker put her hand up and asked:

'Didn't they have any alcohol, sir?'

Like father, like daughter, it would seem.

I love the picture. Those were the days, eh? When teachers looked like teachers and parents knew their place! LOL

I've always wondered what the children give away about home when at school, and rather hope no one's listening. Sadly for you they were!

Well that was a valid question! A girl after my own heart. :)

Better she said that rather than didn't they have any crack sir? Could've been worse.

Tee hee! I got an i-touch for my birthday last year and it's had the same effect on me! I even downloaded Rat on a Scooter this week on the recommendation of my sixth formers. I really "must do better"!
