Its Snow People It Wont Kill You
We are teaching our children that its okay to not go to school when the weather is not to our liking. We then show them that because Daddy or Mummy has to travel an extra hour that its okay not to go to work. We then wonder why we have a generation who feel its okay to sponge of the state and not bother going to work as it might take them some time too get there!!! Whats wrong with people. For all those schools that closed yesterday, why YOU had the day off, Mum's and Dad's had to take annual leave or go sick to LOOK after the kids you LET DOWN. You should be ashamed off yourselves. Too strong? Perhaps but I bet 80% didnt even make the effort. To the 20% that did. Superb effort and well done.
Let me tell you about my day yesterday. It snowed quite heavily were I live. I got up got the kids dressed and gave them breakfast. Checked my phone for messages and saw one from the school saying it was open. Didn't expect anything else to be honest. So we then set off for school. How did we get there? We walked as we always do. Now I know this isnt always possible for everyone and I accept that. However make the effort people, leave earlier if you have to. Anyway, on the way too school we had a snowball fight. When we got to the school a few of my daughters friends saw us and joined in. Everyone was happy and smiling and god forbid ENJOYING THEMSELVES.
I then walked home and guess what I did? Go on see if you can? No? Okay I got ready for work and left an hour earlier than usual to make sure I was on time. WOW I made an effort. I was brought up to go to school or go to work. When I was a kid if I wanted a day off of school I had to be on my death bed. In 7 years I have had 2 days off work. One for food poising and the other for a pulled muscle in my back. I couldn't stand up so I couldn't get to work. I took pain killers and WENT IN THE NEXT DAY. Do I want your praise or your sythmapy? Nope don't need it to be honest.
