From Meg's diary

Meg has to write a diary each weekend about something she did that weekend. It's a free writing exercise.

It always interests me the one event out of a whole weekend that she will pick to write about. It's often not the thing I would choose as the highlight of the weekend. Sometimes it's downright the last thing I would choose as she complains 'Mummy said we had to clean our room today. I hate cleaning so much. Mummy always says clean up clean up. I think mums should do the cleaning.'

The teacher writes a comment on the diary every week as well. Sometimes if we do something a little unusual: 'On Saturday I helped mummy and daddy cut wood. I only used a little saw because the big saw is too noisy.' We will get a comment like "WOW!! You used a saw??!! Be careful!!"

But it's her diary and her self expression so I don't interfere.

I am more than a bit curious to hear what the teacher says about this weekend's diary though:

"On Sunday we went to a friend's house and ate wild boar. It was so stinky! But when you cook it it tastes yummy. I want to eat more different animals. I want to eat a giraffe next! I want to eat wild boar again, too!"

No chance of Meg going vegetarian I guess.

I like pork and guess wild bore would be like that but with a stronger taste.
