On Friday of this week, to celebrate the end of term, our primary school is having a non-uniform day. They've billed it as a "Come as You Please" day. Earlier this evening, I heard said Blue Eyed Boy (who's only now, after seven years, beginning to tolerate the idea of school) explaining to his youngest sister that he thought they should all pretend they thought "Come as You Please" meant you could turn up at school whenever you liked. 3.15pm for example. "Hello! Oh is it time to go already?"
Also amusing me today has been this blog. Racing Demon is in good form today, with not one, not two, but three very funny posts today (the 16th) and also this one yesterday.
And, last but not least, I'm responding to a plea to give the Scottish Banter website a plug, to my Scottish readers at least. It can be a bit "earthy" at times, but as a recent recruit, I like it. It's good fun. (I work in prisons - I can cope with earthy!)
