    Oh how I love Facebook!

    Someone’s been uploading our old primary school class photos to our school group, and it’s a constant source of amusement. my inbox has been full every night this week, blocked up with all the comments from people. especially funny was our year 6 photo with everyone reminiscing about memorable moments and particularly THE BOY, not surprisingly as he was rather infamous at school throughout childhood, and adolescence too i suppose. so i laughed, and laughed, to read people saying “oh how we used to wind him up” and “i hear he’s a good guy now” and “yea him and E are are a happy couple now, she’s been a really good influence on him”.

    he really is my marcus flutie.
