I was, with hindsight, perhaps a little too smug in yesterday's post. Yes, I got my marking done and class notes updated in a gentle and relaxed fashion. I needed them for this evening's parents' evening. I left them at home. I drove home and back to school again in my lunchtime. I work miles away. I then got home again (after parents' evening and losing my voice) at 9pm. I am a spanner.
The boy had been brought home by the lift-share ladies. He had been kept amused by the wonders of the car's internal light going on and off. He is a little odd.
