Quote of the day

Came from a cherub in my class, who I'd been nagging er I mean gently encouraging to grip their pen correctly and write neatly. Much whinging went on ( them ), much scathing looks went on ( me ) until said child lifted up their arm and let it flop on the desk. 
They declared, over dramatically, in my professional opinion, that they simply could not write anymore. 
Why?? 

" My arm has fainted."
My face! 

Other things I have dealt with today included sorting out an incident where one child smacked another child in the face with a pencil case. No one was harmed, and to be fair, the hittee thoroughly deserved it and I was really on the hitter's side! In fact I'd have urged harder thwacking with a larger pencil case!!! 
But as is the case, the hittee wasn't even hurt ( where's there's no brains there's no sense my  beloved Nanna used to say) but the hitter was punished and was truly admonished! 

I often use my secret weapon at school. For certain Angels, I have been known to whack them from here to kingdom come with my imaginary frying pan! It's so heavy,  - it's a Le Creuset, I have to hold it with two imaginary hands. 
Sometimes I fantasise about holding  one cherub by the feet, swinging them round and round in a circle, like an Olympic hammer thrower, and letting go and taking out a row of more cherubs! It's imaginary moments such as these that keep me sane!  

Lots of love from

    1. That just reminded me Sheila, the fainting arm child, on our London trip, after we went to see Matilda, had leaned over to me and said, don't tell anyone, but I think Miss Trunchbull. Is. Actually. A. Man.

      Lol lol lol Miss Trunchbull was played quite brilliantly and obviously to the grown ups, by a bloke!!!

  12. The fainting arm is brilliant, however, I am very worried about your Le Creuset fantasy. Half term has clearly arrived at just the right moment :o) XX

  14. You should patent your imaginary frying pan and run courses on how to use it. It'd be a roaring success in schools up and down the country. Love the fainting arm, the little b*****s can be so funny at times. xx
