There is something very wrong with Cliff Richard these days. I just hope he never stands too close to the fire.
I'm too young for the Seekers. The New Seekers are more my thing
Nice dumplings, XB
Ta for all the ideas about no 1. Yes, lots of assessments n stuff lately. Some B grades, a C and a C minus. Not got physics results yet. I think its note about him not panicking if he can't work out the issue. He appears to get overwhelmed. I sometimes feel like that but guess I have the maturity to remind myself to get a grip;-) I'm waiting for head of year to phone me. Podds, yes please to chum ideas
Can't escape Christmas ever - Buddhist Christmas meal tonight.... I mean, really!
Now, advice needed peeps. No 1 is taking his GCSEs next year. A few weeks ago he began finding triple science, esp physics, too hard, becoming tearful n overwhelmed. I have spoken with teach n head of year and if they think it wise I'm fine about him dropping it. Last night he was doing maths, sine, cosine tangents etc and he became tearful n I stopped him doing his homework as it wasn't helpful. So, I don't have the skills to help him but I'm concerned enough to be seriously considering private tuition. OK, cost is likely to be a problem but how do I establish where to get reputable tuition ? He already attends after school classes for ICT, science and Spanish which the school provide. I'm not worried about A grades etc. I'm more concerned his confidence holds up as he's a sensitive soul. In the back of my I have the fact that my sister flipped out during her mock exams, never returned to education, spending the next 5 years living in units for disturbed children.
I will speak with school too. Sorry, long, serious post. Let normal service resume
Ah, DL, see, even the 'sticky' adoptees eventually find a home. Nice to know your computer is barmy too
Erm, coco, an age thing? I thought you were one of the bright young things here in WAISTers!!
LOL at Alfie's diet. Bless him, he's not fat, just big boned
Podds, what, the kids behaving? I reckon all you need to do to get your mojo back is bollock a few lily livered surly teens I know where you can find one....;-)
Hill reps tonight. Not feeling the love n right quad/ITB grumbling. Still, I do have nice warm club hoodie to wear now sharing a room with Daffy has clearly rubbed off on me as I sewed tassles onto the drawstrings so I know its mine
