Midday….. House lights and heating full on. But at least the mist has retreated for a while.
So another day and another email from school. Another pupil has tested positive and 25 more pupils asked to isolate. A nightmare for the kids and families living with this virus. Its doing nothing for our son’s current anxieties. It can’t be much fun at school as well. Oh for a magic wand.
“Yes Dad a magic wand would be much used this year.”
It would Hawklad. Much needs fixing.
“Thinking about it I had better have the wand, not YOU.
Don’t you trust your Dad….
“You know what would happen. It would be like the TV remote control. You wouldn’t be able to find it. Then after hours of going red in the face you would then stumble upon it. But the wand will be flat out power and you won’t be able to find the right replacement batteries. Finally you will get the wand to work but then you won’t be able to remember how to use it. You will shout at it for a while before you pass it to me to figure it out.”
HE KNOWS ME TOO WELL…..
