"We're not going to a fancy dress party"
He obviously didn't appreciate my funky combo of denim skirt, black leggings and my girl's Smartie patterned, short wellies (she has taken my very expensive full length wellies on holiday with her).
I thought I had dressed quite sensibly, under the circumstances - we have had heavy rain quit a bit this week and as we were going to a National Trust park for a walk I thought :-
But yesterday, my fears were confirmed - my girl not just a geek but a super geek extraordinaire! When she phoned to give us a run down of her day I asked if she had been surfing. No she replied, I just sat on the beach reading. What novel are you reading I asked? Now wait for this - her reply was "I wasn't reading a novel I have brought my Chemistry and Biology books to read." "Do you have a test when you go back?" I asked. "No" she said "I just like reading them!" I feel sorry for her boy, he has to study whether he likes it or not.
We once took her out for a meal and when I looked down she was reading a Biology book while waiting for her meal. I know most mothers complain that their children don't study enough but really - taking Chemistry and Biology books on holiday as a little light reading - no wonder her bag was so heavy!
I have almost finished my 'Alice in Wonderland' mini album - I thought I would just do a little last night and before I knew what had happened it was 2am and I don't do late nights usually. So hopefully, I will have it finished tomorrow and will do a little blog show and tell.
