Excuse for not coming in
This is absolutely fantastic and cheered us up after a morning of faily switches.
A phone call received by our attendance chap.
"Hello, I'm keeping my daughter off because of the poison in the air from all these airplanes so I'm not bringing her out today."
Then we checked the news to make sure they didn't know something we didn't.
Then we carried on laughing.

Exhaust fumes ARE poisonous. [I think.]

Difference is, when "all these plans" are several thousand feet high, I'm sure a fair few more of us would be having an effect! Plus, there's no more or less planes about today than any other day! The nearest (proper) airports are East Midlands and Luton, both of which are over 40 miles away.

Must admit...I felt a bit woozy when I left Welly this morning....
Could have been the poisonous gases....or the wine I drank last night!!

Ah but doesn't one lead to the other?

She also said that she'll be back tomorrow - are the planes not flying then? :-)
I'm not taking any chances though - I'm sure there's a gas mask in the history dept.

So that'll be an unauth absence then?

How can you be sure that she didn't live near Sywell???
It may be that the aerobatic team had got up early and were having a practise? Or some of the choppers were up and about....
It's a busy hub, don't ya know!!!

The planes there are barely big enough to have a passenger though!
Then again, those microlights can chuck out some nasty smells, but that depends on how nervous the pilots/passengers are

Because we know where she lives - 2 streets away!

Got a reply on friday that made me smile
followed quickly by
I've had a text to say you haven't turned up at school. SORT IT and let me know. you were obviously late and I'm not happy!
if only every parent was so supportive.
Sorry obviously meant to send that to Charlie I will ring up once I have heard from him
