... has had a great couple of weeks.
(Warning: this is a proud grandmother post.)
A couple of weeks back his year at school put on Bugsy Malone, and he played Fat Sam. (Apparently he counted the lines one day, and he had more than Bugsy himself!). The play lasted an hour and a half, and he was on stage for a lot of that time and he did not once forget his lines, or even drop the New York accent (pretty good for a Yorkshire lad I thought). His parents (the Nomads) were told by several people that he stole the show, and I definitely thought so too.
A few days after that, he got his SATS exam results. These are national exams, and he got brilliant results almost all subjects at grade 5, which is about as high as he could get.
Then, a few days after that, his football team were playing in some sort of gala, and they drew in the finals so it had to go to penalties. Chatterbox volunteered to go in goal for that part, and saved 2 penalties, which meant his team won.
Just to top off a brilliant fortnight, he was awarded Student of the Year at school.
Didn't he do well?
