    World Book Day?


    1 Not allowed!
    So I'm walking to work this morning and wondering if I'd managed to somehow slip into a coma for a few months.

    It must be May 4th I kept thinking, it just must be. In 15 minutes I'd seen 4 Storm Troopers, one Darth Vader, a Princess Leia and a Wookie.

    Turns out it's actually World Book Day according to a few of the Mum's in the office and Kiddy's have been encouraged to go into school dressed as a Literary Character, I doubt any of them have ever read the Books though.

    Anyone else see any strange shit on the way to work?
    I will not make any deals with you. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own,

      Both our kids' schools had World Book Day yesterday so I thought that Brighton celebrated this a day early. My kids went as Katniss Everdeen and Skulduggery Pleasant. I'd like to have seen my son's headmaster though - he was an Oompa Loompa

      My other half is a Children's Librarian so I saw her dressed up as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz this morning.

      Reasonably strange.
