Joan


I was a school teacher for sixteen years. I played the circle time and I tried to understand that, that the children knew that their parents had a name, you know Janet, John, whatever, not mum and dad so I always say “what’s your mummy called?” So I asked this little boy “what’s your daddy called?” and he went “Bastard!” And I went “No what does your mummy call your daddy?” “Bastard!” So that’s one of my stories from my children because children, I taught for 16 years, very funny stories, that was one that I’ll never forget.
