The Bard Blooper…

It’s Storytelling Sunday time again over at ‘From High In the Sky’ & Sian suggested a theme of Too Cool For School, to coincide with the start of the Autumn school term.

On the eve of hubby taking up his first teaching post, where he will be teaching a Year 5 class of nine year olds, I’d like to share a short & sweet tale of his early school years as told to me by Mum-In-Law on her recent visit.

happy_birthday_shakespeareThe date is April 23rd 1964 & a six year old Lee is being collected after a busy day at primary school.  On the walk home he chatted about his day & told Mum that in assembly they had announced that today was William Shakespeare’s birthday. 

Mum asked him if he knew who that was, to which Lee replied “Well he’s not in my class & I didn’t get an invitation to his party!”

Bless him!

Good Luck with the little darlings tomorrow sweetheart!

Thanks for dropping by & come back soon! Open-mouthed smile
