Re: End of Lent Term - another Post Mortem

I cannot believe the insensitivity of some people! This thread started with an informative and personal account of a parent and son's experience for which huggermugger should be applauded.

Re: First Day.....Last Day

Speared myself at least five times as I palpably failed to do my bands. Tried to bounce on my bed and sent four planks crashing to the floor. Cried myself to sleep for t...
