Parents' Evening

‘Catholic Day’ – Adam & the Ants


My Parents’ Evening tonight! Betty and Freddie saw Mrs Montgomery, who reckons I should do Drama A-Level and work towards applying for RADA! They also saw the new headmaster, Mr Burleigh and Mr Dixon (“Games”), but apparently everybody’s pretty chuffed wiv me!

In other news, Flash’s cats have pissed on his Man From Del Monte record and he’s apologised to me for making a verbal attack on the Situation tape Nuclear Campaign Against Ritcherd. His favourite tipple is Sherry & Lemonade. Once, on a visit to the Yorkshire Show, he fought the overwhelming urge to kick a bull in the testicles. He (probably) fancies Astra Trellis.
