Some of the kids have a fairly loose interpretation of 'write your initials neatly in one corner'. I thought it was the fault of the pens. I rushed off to Tescos and pesuaded a very helpful chap to rummage about in his store to find the unsold laundry markers from their back to school promotion. Now half price! How could I resist?
But was my problem solved? No, my problem was reversed. We now have tiny, illegible initials. I can't tell if they are actually in the corner because I can't see them!
