The Eight Year Old: "It's not finished remember so I've made a little walk-way through so that I can get into bed".
Me: "Well yes, there is that". *walks calmly out of the room taking deep breaths*.
The Eight Year Old (calls after me): "I'm going to finish it off tomorrow".
In the meantime, The Eight Year Old has, this morning, gone to school delighted to be wearing his pyjamas -for the cost of only 50p to the charity 'Shelter', all the children and teachers can wear their pyjamas today.
The Eight Year Old has, of course, taken things a step further...by wearing his dressing gown too. Is it possible to be eccentric at the age of eight? He's certainly giving it a good go!
