Target-setting

Set off without enthusiasm to daughter’s school for first Sixth Form Progress Meeting; seem to have spent much of last year attending Progress Meetings about GCSEs – which, as other mother remarks, are Now Just Yesterday’s Fish And Chips – and cannot help wishing school not always so conscientious about Involving The Parents. Am however pleasantly surprised by enthusiastic teacher, who prescribes Travel and Reading rather than target anxiety, and become quite excited about daughter’s Future – even if her plans for it remain somewhat Vague.

Children predictably scornful of my first forays into Twitter and of my claim that can now Join The Conversation; challenge me to have Conversation with Nicki Minaj or Inbetweeners. Am keen to confound their expectations, but suspect that may have to expand tweeting repertoire beyond West Lothian Question and the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire.
