D has finished her compulsory education. I will not start reminiscing about me taking her playschool all those years ago. No. I have in the past and I’m sure I will in the future but right now she has 10 weeks of having nothing to do. 70 days of unemployment. I have proposed chores (no), walking the dog (no), keeping things tidy(no), staying off msn(err….No). In fact nothing I have said has elicited any sort of positive response to any effort-based ventures. As much as I think she should do some I also think ‘what the hell, she’ll never have this 10 weeks of transition again’. If she can’t have fun this summer, when can she eh?
