and then you get so used to revision notes blutacked all over the place that they stay up for months, until a visitor asks why and you realise you've stopped seeing them.

You have had to buy loads of jotters from Smiths so she has a revision note book for EVERY subject.

Sales of highlighters and coloured pens escalate.

You trip over exercise books, revision guides and A4 files in every single room!

You go to the supermarket and you get a text for more pens, post it notes and highlighters!

Cheryl Cole posters are covered in post it notes!

DS cannot carry out any household tasks, no matter simple, because he's revising hmm

When the scarf DD1 is knitting suddenly gets longer or drawings appear on her chair.

To be fair brightly coloured mind maps of relevant facts appear too!

when I start to get panicked emails from my A level students who haven't done a thing all year.... but now realise that maybe a revision guide and a decent set of notes would have been a good idea after all hmm

Mrsrobertduvall Wed 17-Apr-13 10:47:29

Oh yes the chores.
dd can't possibly empty the dishwasher for the foreseeable future.

OddBoots Wed 17-Apr-13 10:50:56

Oh mrsjay, you need to tell your dd that dog walking is part of revision.
