Way back when I was small, my grandparents used to take us (my siblings and me) on holiday for a week in summer. When my folks arrived to pick us up, the grandparents could almost be guaranteed to say: “rather a week than a fortnight” and “we’ll think we’ve gone deaf”. As a kid I didn’t really get what they meant. I mean, we thought we’d had a great holiday, and they agreed it’d been loads of fun.
I’m currently volenteering at a circus workshop for kid’s..
There are something like 130 5 to 13 yr olds and man are they LOUD!!
They’re also here for a week..
Obviously it’s not Friday yet, but when it IS.. I have a feeling I will have a better understanding of both sayings!
