A good note...

Gareth came home from school last week with a small crumpled post-it note. He held it tight in his hand and walked slowly up the driveway looking down at his feet. I could see he was fighting back a grin and so I played along.

"Mum, I've got some news from school. It's not so good"
"The school excursion helpers got pulled from a hat today......"
He looked slowly up at me
"...and you DID GET PICKED!"

He grinned from ear to ear and I pretended to be shocked and convinced that he was going to tell me I had not been chosen.

The excursion is tomorrow and we both can't wait!
