Great Niece and Nephew
Anji writes, 'he received a certificate for “very good listening in class”. Ironically at the assembly his name needed to be called three times to go and collect the award. HMMM. In the past has always been very concerned about having flat hair, and he would rage if his hair stuck up at all. A change of attitude has suddenly taken place and now, every morning before school, he now has to put gel in the hair and have the ‘a la David Beckham’ Mohawk. It’s become quite an obsession. I’m thinking there’s a girl behind it all.
At times the weather has been quite intolerable for a 6 year old to deal with: “I wish I could live in an ice cube”.'
My great niece "has signed up for the school musical called ‘Kids at Sea’. She has been cast in the chorus as a hippy mermaid. So aside from her having three afternoons of normal dance lessons, she now has to fit in an afternoon and a morning musical rehearsal. The social life of a 10 year old is much more interesting than that of the rest of the family. Off to dinner for a friend’ birthday…off to the school disco…off to the shops, off to dancing, off to here there and everywhere.
The year 6s went to the city on the train for an excursion to the science centre. They are learning about inventions this term and figured the science centre is related. Each kid had to invent something for a project. She has invented the ‘Automatic Food Stirer’. Sounds intriguing ay."
