My Spanish Exercise book circa 1974- in the days when covered books with wallpaper remnants!
I can't believe I am letting you look at my exercise book!
|We even used real ink!|
We also wasted nothing - this book is full of spanish, and in the spaces : Richard 11 notes, Silas Marner notes and even some genetics for biology !
I think my fear or dread of this most tortuous of nights dates back far into my past - where comments were often-" Miss O ( my maiden name) could do better......... It would help if Miss O concentrated and didn't gaze out of the window............or even if she brought in her homework..........."
I positively detested those evenings- I did so hate disappointing my parents.
These days I still hate them but now from the view point from the other side of the fence. How often I have attended all happy faced and smiley wondering what wonderful things my precious child has done only to hear that history is sort of repeating itself! In fact if a teacher reports something wonderful or is glowing about my child ( and this does happen despite my previous comments) I positively fill up with tears as I become immensely proud. It is an evening of roller coaster emotions.

Does the term "Parents Night " give you nightmares or did you or have you had better experiences ?
|Ohh and also some French!|
For my part this is one evening after which a large glass of something cool white and made from fermented grape is called for! and I am off to find my glass and the fridge!
