The latest communication from my youngest son’s school, to remind parents about Christmas lunch:
Just a reminder that Christmas lunch for all students is available tomorrow – Wednesday, 14th December.
Please ensure your child’s lunch card is topped up as no loans will be given for Christmas lunch.”
My emphasis in the text above, as it struck me as a particularly unfestive attitude worthy of old Ebenezer Scrooge himself.
God bless us, every one!
