Exactly. In Mail-land teaching is such a doddle and so well rewarded it amazes me that the teacher bashers don't jump on the gravy-train themselves. Whatever can be holding them back I wonder?

More moving than Wind the Wind Blows I think, as it shows his struggle with everyday life rather than a cataclysmic event.

Not sure about the council workers being portrayed as faceless jobsworths though!

Opportunity to put a condom on a cucumber


I seem to remember my school using a remarkably realistic plaster cast! That could have been a result of growing up in Dagenham though!

We used a boy called Webley in Year 10. Always reliable, Webley. Never called him wobbly.

We used a rounders bat. Needless to say, my first time was awkward. Although, in retrospect, going "Is that it?!" to my best male friend probably made it worse for him.

Heh. It was our form teacher, as they used to take the PSD (Personal and Social Development) lessons. Mine was a middle aged crusty with HUGE knockers. My friend had a beautiful young French teacher. Life was unfair!

Although, in retrospect, going "Is that it?!"


If I were female I'd have probably said the same just for a laugh. That fits my sense of humour perfectly.
