The broken finger

The other day, I got a call from school. My daughter had hurt her finger playing basketball. Yes, at the school that never does PE. Apparently, basketballs are actually really flipping heavy. It wasn’t broken, but it was painful. She’d had ice on it and had it strapped up, but could I take some Calpol to her?

I broke my daughter

It started with dog poo. My daughter was running and jumping and skipping along, as she does. She did some sort of beautiful ballet leap and landed straight in the middle of some dog poo.
