Today we made a start on Jodie-pie's homework project.
Actually, I started on the homework project while Jodie ligged out on the sofa watching some annoying American thing.
The homework is to make a trojan horse....and "you can have help" ...which means it's a competition amongst parents to make the biggest, bestest horsey ever. (I know this 'cos I saw what last years parents came up with!)
Yay I thought, this is where the papier mache evening course I did in 1993 finally comes in handy!
Well after cutting my hand to bits on the chicken wire, having all the soggy newspaper fall off everywhere several times and taking all afternoon to not even get the first layer on, my enthusiasm for the stupid bloody thing has diminished.
