366 unusual things: days 349 – 353

14th Dec – One of my students said today after our last lesson, ‘I’ll miss you’.  This is unusual for me.

15th Dec – Watched a six-year old write in cursive, something most older children and young adults can’t do these days.

16th Dec – Saw the word ‘themself’ in the latest translation of Les Misérables.  If the translator wrote it (eek!) then why didn’t the editor fix it?  Do they both think it’s a word?

17th Dec – Taught a student last week how to crochet triangles and today I was going to teach her how to join them together.  But she turned up with a whole bag made from them.  Left me standing in the dust cloud.

18th Dec – Saw some bugs that like only white things (they used to gather in hundreds on my white washing).  Last night they were asleep in a huddle on my white hydrangea.  Dreaming of a white Christmas…  This morning they were awake and working.
