Day 184

Level 2 Chi Kung.

Nick took morning shift and I had a lovely sleep in – the electric blanket really makes a difference. Katie returned from her sleepover very happy and lively. The highlight of the evening was the night-time walk through the school’s small patch of forest, culminating in toasting marshmallows over a bonfire. The scandal was that Sam (a tiny child with the face of an angel, but allegedly the naughtiest child in year 3) took his onesie off and displayed his three piece suite to the assembled company. Katie, who was looking in the wrong direction (poor child takes after her mother!), would have missed the entire incident if she hadn’t heard the deputy head shouting “SAM, PUT YOUR ONESIE BACK ON RIGHT NOW AND DON’T YOU DARE TAKE IT OFF AGAIN’.

I joked with Nick that, in a few years, the parents would no doubt be wanting to send the children to sleepovers sewn into their onesies! And of course that made me remember the Knight in Rusty Armour (Every suit of armour ever made/ has a chink/ chainmail pants with a missing link.). I was astonished that Nick had never heard of it – I guess it is the difference between being the oldest (and growing up in a small town with only the National Programme), and having lots of older siblings playing their records in the background.
