Thankyou to all who asked for the password. As much as we were taken with the idea, wordpress were not and have since removed their password option! So, I am looking for an alternative route to Internet safety. I thought of giving us all pseudonyms, I would be the Surrey housewife, my daughter, the diva, my son, the sun which shines out of, my husband…well obviously… the brewer. But not sure I would like that!
Home School goes on and is much enjoyed by me of all people. I could rave about it for hours, but as I still can’t persuade myself to voluntarily do it, I can hardly expect anyone else to be so influenced. I have though, discovered some new parental woes, mostly from the other end of the spectrum to what I am used. Going around Museums for instance, is a painful, foot hopping experience as I wait for them to move on. They are genuinely interested (and that verges on disturbed in my book). On a slow Monday morning I decided it was good plan to walk along the River and learn the nation’s favourite poem ‘If’, only for me to be quoted as I asked for them to hurry up out of the car ” Mum, if you can wait, and not be tired by waiting” in a rather triumphant, little diva voice. Yes, I would like to burn every copy of that noble poem. Don’t feed it to your children, the consequences are not to your benefit. My powers have diminished, today I tried to bribe with tv time, only for the disdainful response “no, I’d rather read”. What have I done?!
Happy New Year everyone!
