My memories of school are on the whole good; yes I had my odd trying moments, people trying to arrange fights for me to attend (involuntarily that is, I was quite a peace loving child!), luckily I managed to get out of them, being friends with girls higher up the pack hierarchy had its benefits.
I have fond recollections of crushes (unrequited, but still fun to have!), making friends then notes being passed back and fourth in the classroom with the latest gossip and believe it or not learning new things. I was somewhat of a geek; I loved history class, business studies, even maths. Myself and the French teacher never saw eye to eye, I think she thought I was destined to fail all my exams, so I must admit to taking great delight when I passed them all with flying colours (yes even French!).
I loved getting stuck into assignments, writing long sprawling essays going well and truly behind the criteria for assessment! Probably why I have taken to blogging so well. I just asked hubbie what his favourite memory of school was and it was… kissing girls! I asked him did he chase them round the schoolyard and he told me “no they came to me”! I think I might be going a little green round the edges. Would I go back and change how I was at school? No, I enjoyed it at the time, I must admit to enjoying college even more, and then University the most. By then I was more confident and outgoing than studious and had to work my socks off to get the grade I wanted come my final year after resting on my laurels too long (too much partying!).
I would love to hear about all your memories (the uniform, the school dinners, your friends anything you want to mention) and in return I will pick my favourite to win a fabulous pair of Vertbaudet school shoes. You can comment here, but if your having trouble please feel free to comment on my facebook page. The competition will close on the 31st of August.
