My daughter has 3 reasons to hate football and decided to write to her Head teacher about them.
Dear Mrs X
I think football should be banned every day.
Here are my reasons:
1. I don’t like being hit by a ball. Why should I be hit when I am not playing?
2. It can break windows and windows cost a lot!
3. It takes up all the room as well as friends falling out.
Because of these 3 reasons to hate football, I hope you do ban it at breaktimes.
So when it comes to football, is it a case of love or loathe?
Do you have any tips for encouraging your kids to be more active and will you join in?
My mum died in 2009. On the day of her funeral, an idiot woman told me my children would not remember her as they were too young.
On Sunday morning, I had a bit of a lie-in and was joined by my 8 and 6 year old children.
“Do you remember Grandma?”
Both nodded enthusiastically.
“Well, I do but I can’t quite remember exactly what she looked like” said my daughter.
“I do” replied my son, “She had glasses and brown curly hair. She smiled all the time and never got angry with us even when we were really naughty”.
“Do you miss your Grandma?”
“Topsy turvy” commented my son waving his hand in a comme ci comme ca manner.
“What I can tell you Mum is that you should be more like her and when we are naughty, just smile and get us a kit kat like she used to do”.
I remember Mum being angry a lot, a woman frustated by her lack of options as I sometimes am.
It was interesting to note that my children had not seen that side to her.
Oh well, maybe there is hope of me being a good Grandma even if I am clearly a woefully inadequate Mum.
My school I love so
The cool caring of it’s people
And hope it won’t die.
On this day in history
D day landings flooded in
and invaded for what we have today.
Kenneth Holmes you shall never be forgotten
Quite what my Dad had to do with the D-Day landings I am not quite sure but the sentiment was a good one.
Such a shame that on moving South, her school was so awful she had to leave.
