Anyway she got more details, sent me a claim form but telling me we probably wouldn't get anything and it would take the insurance company months to decide they'd give us nothing. Found $58k in my bank account this morning

We are officially no longer brassic. **** me, I can't stop smiling
Oi you..lend us a fiver

Sounds like we need another girly night out in Sydney. This time with Miss Moneypenny.

My daughter won student of the year. She gets to go to some weird ceremony and wins a prize. I'm well aware if this was your child I wouldn't give two monkeys about it. Which is why I'm putting here instead of FB so that instead of it being ignored I can be insulted instead - the true way for British people to be nice to one another.

Ok, I'm not British, so can't give you an insult.

But I've seen how kids look when they go up to get their award and it always makes me smile!

How special. Hopefully, now you'll get to go to one of those creepy "father daughter" dances.

Oh just by the look of the pictures he's posted, I'm betting she's no teacher's pet! But she doesn't look like the bully either. I bet she's captain of the ship!

Neither really. There is a boy in the class though who is an utter little shit though. He actually tried to stab another kid in the head with scissors.
