Fings aren't so bad, are they?

SW presented me with a bundle of her stories, recently. Each one is a little treasure, and will probably find their way to this blog in due course. But I'm sharing one about Anna's first day at school, purely because it's so optimistic.


Anna was on her way to her new school. As she went, she wondered about her new school. Would it be nice? Anna rang her bell, and off she rode.

When she arrived at school, Miss Bun took the register. "Milly." "Yes." "Anna." "Yes." "Ben." "Yes."

Miss Bun said they were learning how to add. "What is 1+1?" Miss Bun explained.
"5322," shouted Anna. "No," she said.

It turned out she got everything wrong, but...

there was one thing she was good at. Ballet dancing.
The school was having a talent show.
 
When the day came, she performed. The crowd fell silent.
 
And it was great. So, maybe things aren't so bad, are they?
