Tooth Fairy/Bye for now/Comment update
The tooth fairy visited my daughter this week. This conversation followed:
‘How did she know where to find my tooth? This time it was in a box on the bedside table. Before it was under my pillow.’
‘I don’t know much about tooth fairies,’ I confessed truthfully. ‘Perhaps she had a light?’
My daughter was not buying that. ‘A light?’ she said disbelievingly. ‘Fairies don’t have lights!’
The tooth fairy will survive for the time being. And Santa will probably get one more Christmas. But time waits for no one – not even teacher bloggers – and it’s almost the end of he month.
The good news is that I’m passing the baton to Nuala O’Sullivan. Like me, Nuala has an Irish name and Irish family (parents in my case and grandparents in Nuala’s) but she was born and brought up in Scotland. I’m sure you’ll want to join me in giving Nuala a big welcome.
You’ve also got a new student blogger to look forward to. And you’re very welcome to follow me on Twitter (my username is eslreading).
That’s all for now. It’s been terrific fun and I hope to do it again some time. In the meantime, I’ll end with a huge thank you to you all.
tooth fairy – comes at night to take away the baby teeth lost by young children. Replaces them with something nice – usually a coin.
It’s true! Honestly!
pass the baton – as in a relay race
brought up – spent childhood
Umair I knew about some of the hill stations in India but not the one you mention. Very interesting. Murray is a very Scottish name, incidentally.
Leila – yes it's nice to have four distinct seasons. That was something I missed when I lived in Madrid. And apparently it’s why Rod Stewart doesn’t live in LA full-time – so we’re in good company (or not, depending on your taste!)
And that was a terrible jab pun, by the way! Even worse than mine! Now whom can I tell this joke to....?
