tarantula · 30/03/2006 12:52

ggglimpopo · 30/03/2006 12:52

Is he talking with a common accent and wiping his nose with the back of his hand - if so, I'd ring nhs direct.

zippitippitoes · 30/03/2006 12:53

a good burgundy

fairyfly · 30/03/2006 12:54

Has anything rubbed off on him? I mean like orange dust from the wotsits the boy was having for breakfast, or crumbs from a sausage roll or anything? If so, I would take him to a decontamination chamber. There is bound to be one near you, look in the yellow pages.

pass the (fragrance free Nature) wipes

Did this happen at school? I'd complain to ofsted, if I were you. This is outrageous.

But on the other hand if you send him to a state school what do you expect? You have to take spme responsibility here.

zippitippitoes · 30/03/2006 12:56

by working class do you mean he comes from a family where somebody works, in which case thank your luck stars it's not as bad as it might have been

MissChief · 30/03/2006 12:56

smartie stains? white bread crumbs ??

maybe it was for "show & tell"?

juliab · 30/03/2006 12:58

O my God! He'll be wanting a Fruit Shoot next...

Blu · 30/03/2006 12:59

The school probably encouraged him to do it - they're only interested in upping their SATS scores.

CountessDracula · 30/03/2006 13:00

ff is there a farm nearby maybe you could pop him in the sheep dip

Kelly1978 · 30/03/2006 13:02

give him a sausage roll and shut up. Grin

..or a (Nigella recipe) marmite sandwich

harpsichordcarrier · 30/03/2006 13:02

good for boosting his natural immunity though
it's excellent practice to allow them to be in contact with dirty things like dogs and cow manure and filthy peasants

MissChief · 30/03/2006 13:03

..I can also loan out my cat for contact with fleas/worms/nasty dead things

fairyfly · 30/03/2006 13:04

It was in the park, the boy was at the bottom of the slide. Or so it seemed, he was probably begging for money or looking at which car to joyride. Anyway i took my eyes off my son for a second and they brushed passed each other.

From now on the will only be allowed in private parks.
