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.
