As we come home from school bear explains that he needs to be in shorts, as it is a sports day. I nearly said a rude word. I am not sure bear has any shorts that fit. I rang the school. Yes, not only should he be in red, white and blue and shorts/jogging bottoms suitable for sports but he should also bring £1. I nearly said a rude word then as well. I didn't feel better when the nice lady in the office (who is actually very nice) helpfully pointed out that they have this every year. I mentioned that not only had I forgotten about last year but while I could vaguely think that it was this year I didn't realise it was going to be tomorrow.
There is a large number of very lovely children recently moved in to nearby houses. I am going to have to take up baking as there is up to a dozen kids playing nicely in front of my house including bear and it is hard if I can't have anything to hand out.
