Walk to school week..

4/365...okay-ish effort in being shout-free...except for 2 sharp sentences..which are not in the range of shouting I've resolved not to do.

Tara's Mum's life carries on alongside. Its pouring with rain and its Day 1 of Walk to school week. We do walk to school almost everyday, because the parking situation near school means we park a lane or two away and walk to the main gate. Today there is traffic chaos, rain and wind, and a tired dawdling child to contend with. Oh, did I mention that for the first time in my life I actually turned the alarm off and rolled over to sleep for a bit longer.

Tara says, "I don't want to be the only numpty without a certificate for walking to school week." She is however, not putting in the extra effort to leave home 15 minutes earlier than usual, to get to the walking group on time. She also seems to be missing the point about walk to school week. Surely its about being aware of the environment and how we reduce our carbon footprint, and not about being the only "numpty without a certificate."

What's a "numpty" anyway?
