Gone, Part 1
So, that's one embryo off to School. I celebrated by getting quite tanked with a couple of new friends, also celebrating their embryos' first days of primary education.
After two weeks of school, trying to drag out of firstborn what he actually did during the day is not yielding much information.
"I looked for fossils in rocks at lunchtime with X and Y."
"We did colouring."
"Z is a naughty boy coz he never does what the teacher says."
"M wet her pants."
Which is all fascinating and I enjoy listening too, however I need FACTS. DETAILS. Like:
"Today, mother, I learnt the past participle of be."
"Oh it was hilarious when Persephone and Phillip couldn't determine the hypoteneuse - they didn't know Pythagoras' theorem."
Gone, Part 2
Claire, Bex, Nik, Katrina - gone but not forgotten.
If anyone else that I now know in this town decides to move, I forbid it. There will be consequences. And tears. BOY there will be tears.
