Neighbours to the left of me, jokers to the right ...

I’m please to formally announce, my daughter, the ‘Gingham Clad Maverick’ (GCM), has “Arrived”. Comensurate with this we now find ourselves elevated into high society, and are probably the talk of a select few. Selected on the basis of their ability to nod their heads and say ‘Oh I know, yes, I know, Ow I knowww’ in the appropriate spaces.

Half Pint (GCM), is interested in the usual ‘girly’ things, pink, fluffy, cuddly, pretty, (that’s enough about me), stuff. She also does that stage school, dance school, trampoline school, gymnastics school, dolphin school, sort of things too. Well the elder sister decided she’d have a bit of the drama school malarky too, fair enough, so they both attend simultaneously, (thats together, if the neighbour is reading).

We probably live on the ‘right side of the tracks’ I suppose, though we probably don’t fit the rest of the street, and one of our neighbours is most definitely a bit of a this is a nice area (it is), for nice people (most are), kind of neighbour. Well the kids love the ‘hoofing’ and ‘luvvying’ of a Saturday morning, GCM has been a regular for a couple of years, couple of shows under her belt, brought the house down once with the old ‘Peering Under the Fire Curtain Gag’, mid performance, (someone elses), of course, and biggun joined just before December. So did the neighbours kid, the same age all bar a few days as GCM.

Well ‘Nanny’, that’s what they call the lady who can curdle milk and small children at 40 paces, mentioned in passing to Mrs NM a choice snippet. ‘Oh you know Mrs X?’, (The Neighbour), ‘She asked me why ‘Spoilt Brat 1′ hadn’t gone up to the advanced class at the same time as GCM, so I just said it was the right time for her to move’.

It was of course. Not only because GCM has got some time in, but also to assist us with the timing, two kids at the school the same time rather than staggered, like their dad coming home from the pub. Nanny and Mrs NM found it ‘tres ammusement’ that Mrs X, didn’t ask us why GCM had moved, but approached ‘Nanny’ clearly miffed that SB1 wasn’t being upgraded, despite being a new starter, and presumably ‘shite’ too.

Cancel two afternoon teas then ….
