i have a matching small bloke, who is starting tomorrow. his idea was this: 'mum, while i'm at school can you just wait in the biscuit room?'. this is the staff room. i like his thinking, but i don't think the staff would be cool with me eating all the arnotts and eavesdropping on teacher gossip all day.

Paula, William asked me this morning if the teachers could come to our house instead of him going to school.

Now, did someone mention Arnott's?? *drool*

Barbara said...

You tell her that she's your favorite auntie, then you push your brother out of the way to make sure you get your hands on the biccies before he does!
