So this letter came home from school inviting all four-hundred-and-something parents to a GetYourGrownUpGrowing thing after school. They needed help digging stuff up and planting veg and trees.
I filed it. In the bin. Like I have time for extra curricular activities.
Then the little one came home with a sad face and said NO parents had volunteered to help.
So I put my name on the list.
It was tonight. After Celebration Assembly. (I wore my wellies to assembly. Quality.)
Me and Alf and about 6 other parents and their kids and a few teachers did some digging and some planting.
It was ace! I was all green fingered and everything!
AND someone lovely from the PTA had made us all some homemade carrot and coriander soup.
And we got to bring home freshly harvested celery 'cos there was so much that the kitchen staff couldn't possibly use it all.
Put my name down next time kid, I LOVE growing stuff me!
