My Daughter gets the bus home from school on her own now, which is lovely for me as no more going out in the horrible cold weather.
This afternoon I am sitting here working and my phone pings with a text from my Daughter as school had finished, so I think it is going to be can so and so come around or can I go here. No, it says she has lost her pencil case and more importantly it had her 2 expensive drawing outliner pens she uses for her art. I know losing her art pens will be traumatic for her as she loves her art.
So I ring her up to find out what has happened, her pencil case went missing after one of her lessons and she had looked everywhere, told her Tutor and told student reception, I give her the what have I told you about taking your pens to school. I tell her to go to the bus stop and get the bus and I will phone school. They said they had spoken to my daughter and hopefully the cleaners will find it tonight.
While I am waiting for her to come home I am rushing about trying to find some pens (that work), pencils, pencil case etc, feeling sorry for her.
She walks in so upset and I said have you looked properly in your bag, she says yes she has looked in it loads of times and had it all out, so I have a look and put my hands straight on her pencil case.
I swear this child looks with her eyes closed.
Now do I leave telling school and deny all knowledge of her finding it, or do I ring and say she has found it.
She did have a lecture though on what to take to school and hopefully she has learnt her lesson, I need to get my own back somehow x
