LOL at "A herbivore can't eat a carnivore, now play properly or I will take them away!"

Me too - but who was it that wrote the book, I've read it and thought it very funny (I too know mums like this) but bugging me now on what the book was called and who wrote it.

bea Thu 11-Jun-09 21:34:37

<useless info alert>

I got married in the church where they sat the mock exam. It's a lovely church.

my SIL lives near there, and sadly, it is all too true.

Lizzylou Thu 11-Jun-09 21:41:56

I'm watching and have read book.
I do know of women like this (was told a horror story of a Mother who had noticed that another woman's child wasn't tracing their name correctly, and told her she should be trying harder with them. At a preschool within a Private Nursery. The Child was just 3yrs old.)

Scary stuff

I'm watching it. The mother (Shirley Henderson) played Moaning Myrtle in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (thought I recognised the whiney voice).

NeedaNewName Thu 11-Jun-09 21:46:51

Of course it was John O'Farrell - thank you!

Dumbledoresgirl Thu 11-Jun-09 21:49:58

Shirley Henderson is in loads of stuff. Ummm, HP, Doctor Who, that thing with that sexy man, modern day Taming of the Shrew, ummm....well loads of things! grin

I was trying to remember where I've seen the dad. It was in Green Wing, he was stabbed with a penknife by Stephen Mangan.

I liked her in Hamish Macbeth.
