Little Miss Last Word

My Beautiful Baby Daughter is still away in Switzerland on her ski trip. She's been very good at keeping us updated unlike her brother who last year only texted to say he'd arrived.

Phone call Wed am 7.30 am auntiegwen time

ag - "Is this the day you ski into France?"

bbd - "Should have been"

ag - "Oh, are you not going then?"

bbd - "No, I've moved myself down into Emily's group, she has a lady instructor"

ag - "Okay, do they not let lady ski instructors into France?"

bbd - "No, they're going on Thursday"

ag - "Ah, bloody EU regulations"

bbd - "Stop trying to be funny, I'm not prepared to ski into a different country with a male instructor who's idea of teaching is to say "right, follow me"

Nobody will ever steal that weans scone.

I've never understood my kids logic either, perhaps a sign of an impending old age and what's worse, they don't think my jokes are funny any more.

Sits you right back on your fanny, doesn't it?! I love when kids show better judgment than expected. The shock is very pleasant indeed! Y'done somethin' right, Mama Gwen. :-)

RLS - it's so sad when they don't think your jokes are funny. I can make myself cry with laughter and all I'll get from her is a raised eyebrow.xx

Libby - she is the most grown up of us all!

Shirley - I'm just wondering if she took him aside and eplained the flaws in his teaching, thats not beyond her...

She's a girl on top of her game!

(can she send the male ski instructor over here then?)

Nota Bene said...

Ah...putting her foot down with men already...she will prosper

Blimey, she'll go far that one. And she's right about some of the ski instructors over there. My first time ever (decades ago) and we all got the night time chair lift up to a restaurant, drank far too much and then had to ski back down with flaming torches. Unbelievable.

AG, what does the last line mean please? E2S x

auntiegwen said...

Mud - certainly but I'm not sure what use a ski instructor would be in the far East but I'm sure you'd try find one :)

NB - I hope so, wouldn't want to pass on my bad Karma with men to the next generation!

Expat Mum - she skiied with torches too but with no alcohol, she is quite sniffy about units since a drug and alcohol safety talk at Girl's brigade, she had a wee paper wheel thing that calculates what's safe and it fair puts you off another glass, I can tell you.

Soxy - it means no one will ever put one past her, my mum always said it, so maybe Irish or maybe Scots?

Tried to comment the other day, for some reason I couldn't...
Sounds as though she had a good teacher! ;0) xx
