Ahm deed noo
Please remember I have a class of six year olds.
So I was introducing the diary for the first time today. We talked
about the date and who would read it and what sort of thing should go
in it. Then we talked about how they were great to look back on. Years
from now they could pick up this diary and read it and they would say
" Ayyyyye see that Miss XXXX, she wis gorgeous her"
"Ayyye see that Miss XXXX, she wis a brilliant teacher"
"Or even "
" Ayyyyye see that Miss XXXX,...."
**voice from the gallery**
" aye she's deed noo"
(Yes, she is dead now)
I just left him................ lying there!
Kidding aside I was bent double with laughter, poor laddie had nae even
realised he had said something funny...Just like last week when in an
effort to reassure him ( which I frequently do in auld scots)
"Dinnae git yir knickers in a fankle"
" But Miss, Ahm wearin boxers Miss "
