My 10 year old just totally confused me. Maths homework - question about finding the area of an L shape, explained how to break it into two rectangles and work out the area of the rectangles and add it together. Sorted!
Next question, kid reads: "Daia looked after a puppy that she found for two weeks."
Me: wait, what? Read it again.
Kid: Daia looked after a puppy that she found for two weeks.
Me: ***totally confused (what the hell kind of a maths problem is that?)*** wait, let me see the book...
Kiddo had changed from maths homework to English homework and not told me The missing bit of the question was "underline the relative clause."
My kid: do you know what a relative clause is?
ETA: my kid confidently explained relative clauses to me
I want that sentence rewritten. How can you find a puppy for two whole weeks?
My small cheerful thing is really small, but happens so rarely. Exactly all the dirty dishes completely filled the dishwasher. Nothing left out for hand washing, no empty spaces.
nah. Just inconvenient. We are lucky to have hot water, and heaters to keep warm. 80% chance the main circuit board has gone and 20% chance it's the interface board so service provider is arranging for manufacturer to visit. Seems it's cheaper and less risk that way - avoids them buying the wrong board or both boards and not being able to return one. They cost pretty much the same.
