Sneeze me a lullaby, Duchess
Bragged about my gymnastics medal at school. Today we performed our countries of the world song, project exhibition and hat parade. Some had to explain the local area with a block graph traffic survey of the main road, some explained that there was a golden ship in the RC cathedral and I had to identify the animal I represented in a sotto voce stage whisper. Due to idiocy and bad parenting, Bud didn't show up so dragged him round the classrooms afterwards. My hat seen here, represents a tortoise, pronounced Tor-toyse to aid in spelling.
Our chromatography experiment has finished due to a massive civilisation of mould in both pots. The rings have worked but they're not really colourful, more a series of spludgy greenish-coloured patches. So we have tried again, with a better cut of blotting paper and fresh petal-only liquid, no green at all. Once I'd read some Alice in Wonderland he suggested I see if Poppy was free but I elected to watch TV.
Just when we were expecting Jof back, Pops came to collect me so she'd have someone to play with while her parents had a barbecue. We played circuit training by manoeuvring a plastic bowl around the garden using brooms, trucks and fishing nets, as you do.
