    Enjoy School, motorhome funster children (no old mo not you)


    T'was the night before school started, when all through the town, the parents were cheering - a riotous sound!! By nine, kids were all washed & tucked into bed where memories of homework filled them with dread! New pencils, new folders, new notebooks too! New teachers, new friends - their anxiety grew! The PARENTS just giggled when they learned of this fright and shouted to all "GO TO BED!!!! IT'S A SCHOOL NIGHT!!! Pass this on to all parents cause "IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR" :)

    My daughter went back last wednesday. Not too bad this year only 2 books to buy (€350 worth last year). Uniform from last year will do then in the new year c€300 to find to pay for her mock A level and A level exams. And that free education Irish style.

    Not just us then :Smile: When we moved here 19 years ago there were very few children brought to school and picked up in cars. Hasn't half changed since.

    Remember it as if it were yesterday, it is over in a flash. My eldest Granddaughter returned yesterday for the final lap of her A levels.
    She went out as 18 year olds do in a foul mood and came home absolutely elated so the new term looks ok.

    She has been working through the hol's as she has for the past couple of years at The Grove Hotel Watford. 5* extremely posh and venue for many celebs including the England football team.
    She was called to the HR managers office this week to be presented with a commendation from the secret diners, they book in unannounced and gave her ten out of ten for her service and attitude to customer service. Thinking back she remembers the situation when a family with two kids came in and ordered every odd item on the menu. They even requested transport between the restaurant and the hotel reception. She arranged electric vehicle transport and thought no more of it.
    Since she has worked there she has had offers of both work and marriage so she has a back up if she doesn’t maintain her high standards in her education.
    I’ve suggested it is a good time to source the perfect husband but she just throws me one of those looks.

    On Sunday evening last, I found my self in a local hostelry, (not unusual for a Sunday evening) well after evensong had finished and as we discussed the ills and evils of the world, much noise of sirens was heard and blue lights were seen. ( I now know why they are called 'blues and two's)...

    Police cars, ambulances etc seen heading towards some houses not too far away.

    Too wet and cold to follow and find out why. But......

    Today after a conversation with someone who was at the local Maqistrates court, turns out it was a 'back to school party' orgainsed by some of the relieved Mums and Dads, that got a bit out of control.

    Ho Hum, its half term in October..

    Sophie has been back for 2 weeks now and she reminded me its only 4 weeks till October hols:Rofl1:. Like you Paul id rather have her at home (dont tell her) but if i tried to home school her she would have no chance in life all she would learn is motorhome stuff:Rofl1:

    Sophie is in 3rd year at high school and will be sitting her exams next May when she will still only be 14, when i was at school we sat them in 4th and 6th but this new system is meant to give them more time to do their highers. Not 100% sure if its better only time will tell downside being she had to make her choices at the end of her 1st year in high school.

    Well aren't you lot lucky. I've Louise, the youngest (6), with me for the week since she has 'smacked (slapped?) face syndrome). Could soon be 'smacked a--se syndrome'. Basically, her cheeks sometimes go bright red and she has a cough/sore throat and it is very contagious. She wanted to go to school today but one of the teachers is in the early stages of pregnancy and there could be at risk of miscarriage if she got it. Now I love having Lulu, but do we think a pregnant teacher should not be in a place where there are these risks? What other ailments might pose a risk before they are detected? :BigGrin:

    Our daughter had this a few years back. We were told by our GP that it is one of the ailments that isn't contagious when you know you have it - if you have red cheeks (face, not a-se) you are passed the contagious stage.:Doh: She was back in school within a couple of days

    Paul ,
    our eldest Jacob has left school now :Eek!:
    He did better than he thought he would with his exams , and got 12 GCSE's :clap::hug:
    Where have all the years gone.......
    Hes started at the Aviation Academy at Leeds Bradford airport on Monday . He looks so grown up in his suit ( saying that he is 6ft 2 ins !) and has nearly a 1 and 1/2 hour bus journey to get there , ( and back:Doh:)

    Isabel and Isaac went back to high school on Monday .
    As i told you before their school is an academy now. Like a free school.
    It as been for about 4 years , it was one of the first .
    Isaacs doing a 2 day , level 3 , day release Mechanics course with Elite training for his option choice this year. Its taking up both options for the year though.
    Hes decided he wants to be a mechanic when he leaves school , so school suggested it and are paying for everything .
    Hes the only one from his school doing it , so he was a bit nervous on his first visit Tuesday but cant wait to go tomorrow, especially now he has some overalls and steel toe cap shoes and has made some new friends :Rofl1:

    .......and for us parents of older children, universities, and drama schools will be starting the new term in a few short weeks! YIPPEEEE!!! :BigGrin:

    Of course, I will be suffering the effects of 'empty nest syndrome'.........finding my laptop and phone where I left them, a full fridge won't be empty by tea time, lights switched off in empty rooms, my bathroom being empty (and clean), I will have money left at the end of the week, every flat surface in the house (including the floor) will be strangely devoid of teenage debris, the washing and ironing baskets won't be bursting at the seams etc, etc,

    HA! I can't flipping wait!!...... Don't tell anyone as I feel a teeny bit guilty for feeling this way........and will, of course, be very excited when the christmas break arrives!
