    Meanwhile, I'm reading that site FiL linked to and some of the English expressions are so strange! Not only had I not heard them but I'm, quite frankly, embarrassed to ask about them and why they mean what they do!

    Tests? What do you mean?
    You had classes in that area? :eek:
    We were tested on our machine skills by trying to sew straight, curvy, zig-zagged, angular and pictorial lines. Lol- that never happened for me!:p: Yes, before GCSE when we had to choose one type of technology to do, we had a technology rota alternating between woodwork, IT, textiles and to start off in year 7, graphics and metalwork. Thank goodness metal work disappeared! I was a disaster at technology; I didn't like it, found it difficult and hardly ever finished a project. I'm not a manual or hands-on person.

    I don't know!
    I was a sub but it ran out today and so when I was back to being a sub I didn't even realise it. Then suddenly it hit me that I hadn't payed for it (I hadn't the first time either, John did because he's lovely!) but now I've no idea who it was!
