Thursday evening, and my brain (and calculator finger) is busily trying to get all my tax sums into order, ready for tomorrow's appointment to fill in my Tax Return. Groan! If you are a young 'un, and do not know what I am talking about, ask a grown up. They will groan too!
So for a pleasant change of mood, I'm going to say thanks to everyone I've seen at this week's schools: REPTON PREPARATORY SCHOOL at FOREMARKE HALL - hope you have an ace Book Character Day tomorrow - and SMAWTHORNE HENRY MOORE PRIMARY SCHOOL - hope you have been really enjoying your Dragon Week, because I enjoyed making up those dragon stories and poems with you- and last of all, thanks to ST. JOSEPH'S CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL in Middlesbrough for being such a happy audience. I'd much rather be with you all than doing these sums . . . Bye for now!
(PS. This is a late night edit! Hooray, I got all my sums done! Triumph - until I find out how much tax I must pay, of course! Luckily, no tax yet on exclamation marks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
