Daughter comes into the kitchen said "Dad there's a big fight in the street and Police everywhere." Excited! - I runs out of the open front door to here it close and lock behind me, the letterbox opens and this little voice says "April Fool."
Just over a year ago, when my granddaughter was around two and a half years old, she was quite a fan of penguins (which she called "gringas"), having enjoyed the film "Happy Feet". She looked up, from the kitchen window, one morning, pointing to a chimney, and exclaimed "gringa!". My daughter pointed out that one doesn't see wild penguins in the UK. I looked up, to see a magpie!
I've forged a Notice of Intended Prosecution for a mate! (Speed camera van letter). I posted it through his letter box early this morning, had the envelope franked etc, put the speed FAQ leaflet in there too. I'm awaiting the outcome.
Yes ..... this is an OLD thread. I didn't want to start a NEW one, so I decided this one'll do. I wanted to share something I found amusing.
My daughter phoned this morning, after the school run. Earlier, she had been watching, on iPlayer, Politics Show, an interview, from the primary school she used to attend, with her Headmistress. The headteacher, who joined the school about 20 years ago, has matured mentally, but, physically, looks exactly the same. She still only looks 30 years old. (The headteacher my daughter had looks younger than my granddaughter's headteacher.)
When my daughter was watching the video, my grandaughter looked at the screen. My daughter told my granddaughter the woman "used to be Mummy's headmistress". From the sound my granddaughter made in response, my daughter reckoned she had expected to see someone like Dumbledore.
