If anyone should come across this weeks copy of Woman's Own, take a look at their This Weeks Blog section on pg 61! There may be someone you recognise in there - but it's okay, you don't have to own up to the fact that you know me!
I have progressed from having a rant in the local press, to having a rant in a national woman's mag! I really hope that non of the parents at the nursery read it!! I'm already ostracized for being an 'older mother' as it is!! In fact - if anyone does ask you if you have seen me recently, please say no!!! I have to say though, that since the headmistress became involved and sent a letter out to the parents asking (telling!) them to mind their language, it has been a lot better up there. Just goes to show that you have to stand up for what you believe in.
There are some lovely parents whose children attend the nursery and it's a shame if the minority of parents who do use foul language are allowed to get away with it. They seem to have no idea that they are swearing, or if they do, they just don't care. A sign of our times maybe? I don't now. It always seems to be a delicate balance, you don't want to say anything to them because you fear they might abuse you, and you don't want to be labelled a snitch either. (I think it's too late for me!) Must be a couple of short stories in there somewhere though.
You see! I'm always on the look out for possible characters and story lines. Once a writer, always a writer!
