I didn't go into school today - my first proper day of study leave. I went out with mum instead, to one of her coffee mornings. We went to Niki's house, which was slightly weird because I know where everything is - Gaby used to live there, and I spent half my childhood playing with her and Georgie. They are funny - Janet and Niki and Sara and Julie. The stuff I learnt was amazing: the amount of gossip! It's all very interesting, so long as you smile a lot and keep quiet and make small talk while you wait for the main conversation - oh my!
