Yesterday I went to pick up the girls from school and at the gate I thought I was told that my middle one had hit her teacher because she couldn’t get her shoes on properly and had been punished. I was shocked and queried what I’d heard yes she has hit her many times I heard. I was flabbergasted…
I went over to the teacher who is also the headteacher and asked what had happened - had she really hit her? The teacher seemed unsurprised to see me and said I’ve been trying to call you all afternoon, I thought oh goodness this really is bad.

With the strong southern accent of the assistant on the school gate I’d heard that Izzy had hit her teacher when in fact her teacher had been trying to call me as Izzys shoes weren’t the right size and she’d been unable to get them on properly so spent the afternoon in socks!
Well I laughed, hugely relieved that it was my mistake and that my second born hadn’t suddenly turned violent after losing her first tooth on Thurs (which she’d swallowed!)
So what have you done this week? Any misunderstandings? This one will go down in the memory books for a very long time! Even after being here for years and now speaking more French than English on a daily basis I still managed to misunderstand this one. Pure gold!
Come on share!
