    Oh, the supermarket-style tantrum. They’re the best.

    Three days back and ‘inspiration’ strikes already 😉 someone not a million miles from me described a similar situation. I guess it happens through the land in the first few days of September.

      I must stress that I had no particular child in mind when I wrote this, it was just based on past experience. Bless their little cotton school socks!

      School’s so good for them – aside from Maths and Literacy and so on, the social skills they learn are many. They learn fast too, out of necessity. Bless them!
