Ours is this week. I am in charge though goodness knows how I managed to get myself in that position. Top activities today included archery and (I kid you not) dressmaking. Do you have it at hour school and if so, what goes down well? I think I'm going to end up with it next year too.

It's normal lessons right to the bitter end on Wed pm <dies of exhaustion>
