I was talking to John (still at work) on the phone the other afternoon. We were discussing the evenings activities and whether he would be home on time and if I should pick up some takeway on my way back from Christopher's swimming. He asked me what time swimming started. "Quarter to six", I replied.
"No it doesn't Mum", came the quick response from Christopher (aka Mr Big Ears) who was listening in. "It starts at 5.45".
OK !! Guess we can chalk this up as yet another system fast going the way of the dinosaur.
