I’m 26 now. 10 years ago I had sat my GCSEs and had given up my first part time job partially because it was boring as but also because I was spending all day Saturday at work and not doing my AS Italian homeowkr because I couldn’t physically do it – I remember one weekend spending most of Saturday and a chunk of Sunday desperately trying to do it. They tell you there is a step between GCSE and AS Level but don’t make it clear how big the step is!
Anyway, today Our Sidekick came home with French and Media homework, he also had History homework that was set last week but he couldn’t do it as he couldn’t get onto the school VLE system (we tried and failed like three times this afternoon!). The thing is I want to do his History assignment for him because of how interesting it sounds lol. I have to keep restraining myself and send him off to do something a task while I entertain myself playing on Facebook or tweeting people.
Why am I like this well I put it down to this, when I was at school, I was the kid who did extra work to attempt to get a better grade. I’d go home the day the homework was set and work really hard on it. If needed I’d spend all day Saturday working on it, and if I forgot a piece of homework I’d be gutted. Our Sidekick had French homework today and to try and encourage him I wrote a paragraph at the same time except my paragraph was longer – it wasn’t intentional it just happened….by the way I gave up French at the end of year 9 at Upper School, I carried on Italian until Year 12 but it’s French that I remember the best. I thought about posting it on here – then I thought that it might be really boring if people don’t speak French. But with some help with my cousin’s lovely wife I am going to post it. (There are a couple of mistakes apparently I’m muddled with le/la’s in places but it’ll come with practice I bet).
So in theory it goes something like this…….
