TGiFriday! We are rolling in to the last Bank holiday weekend for the summer. Football has started and the other members of the household are avidly discussing their fantasy football teams! Plus the performance of the real teams who they all support. Cricket season still remains and they lament the performance of their fantasy cricket men! But Hampshire are through to the T20 final in Cardiff this Saturday. And the Paraolympics is not far away.
This week has been full of all the last-minute pre-school bits and pieces like hair cuts, eye appointments, dentist, name label sewing, new school shoes and final bits of missing uniform. Phew!
GCSE results were down for the first time in several years as questions are asked as to whether examining boards felt under pressure about comments that marking was getting too leniant.
Gone a bit mad in the kindle store downloading books, don’t have time to read them all! Still wading through the classic “Water babies” by Charles Kingsley. I’ll be honest, some of it is like chewing on cardboard! But it’s a classic!! I must be missing something?
There’s a e-mail floating around warning of a mobile phone hoax, where you get a call from an “engineer” who claims to be testing your phone and he asks you to press #90 or#09. DO NOT do this as it gives then access to your sim card and they can use your account to make calls. END the call immediately.
