Grit is very cunning

HA! I cleverly outwit the gritlets ONCE MORE! I buy a calligraphy set for £1 at the Community Charity Shop, then whisper to Shark, Squirrel and Tiger that this set is so special and important that only one person can do this activity at any one time!

Immediate brawling, squabbling and falling out. Mummy Grit imposes a timetable for calligraphic pen use. And then I say now you are medieval monkettes and you must copy out the book of your choice. I am delirious with happiness. Because the writing GOES ON ALL DAY.




I am now the proud owner of 50 sheets of handwritten pages from each little grit. BEAT THAT FOR HOME EDUCATING GUILE.

Oh now you can get them to learn to write Japanese or Korean letters. I like Korean best because they look like little buildings with their solid bold lines.

ingenious! Take that Mr. Patel.

Sheer genius. You take my breath away Gritty.

thank you for your comments people.

sadly the novelty is now worn off. i am hatching new plans.

yes, sb, i agree about korean, and it is such a sensible alphabet it inspires my belief i could learn the language easily too.
