Spent Friday morning at A's for breakfast and then toddled over to the school for their 'open morning'. H's class first and the presentation was on the Romans. Walked in to find twenty odd P2's and 3's wearing hand made Roman helmets. Large gold painted papier mache globes fitted onto their heads with cardboard plumes along the top. Wanted to laugh. Some of the plumes had been stuck on the wrong way giving them a comical look. They gave an extremely cute show. Moved onto L's class and a talk on the Royal wedding and the UK. It has to be said not so cute but good none the less.

Spent the afternoon with a splitting headache (L had one too),  so did nothing but lie along the couch hoping it would go away. Lassie came on and I cringed. L was desperate to watch it and I new it would be tears before bedtime. Sure enough a Lassie film is not a Lassie film without the demise of something cute, and within an hour she was snivelling when a wee mongrel went off to the great dog basket in the sky. She cheered up when Grease came on next,  but I was less than amused when she started doing thoroughly inappropriate pelvic thrusts across the living room floor a la Danny Zuko.  I had forgotten how some of Grease is too near the bit. When I told her to stop she just laughed and continued as she new darn fine she was winding me up big time. Thank goodness the next thing on wasn't American Pie................
