They've just changed the role play area at dd's nursery from a travel agent to a greengrocer, complete with lots of new posters and signs advertising (eg) Oranges, Yellow Lemons, Fresh Sprouts and

Green Pea's

I was hanging about waiting for dd to finish her vitally important sandpit-related project and spent ten minutes dithering, then, realising it was only blue-tacked to the wall, I couldn't take it any more. I peeled it off, handed it to one of the staff saying 'Oh, can I give this to you to take the apostrophe out?', grabbed dd and ran.

I am sure I now have a black mark against my name as Freakish Grammatical Parent...
