I’ve been away for a week, on the rather gorgeous and pretty remote Isle of Raasay (Western Isles, Scotland for any geographobes out there). Obviously I’ve returned with a camera full of images and a head full of thoughts but first I’ve got a shed load of housekeeping to do – in more ways than one.
However, I had to share this little pearl with you.
Travelling on one of our many roadtrips around the island, the 8yo was instructing the 5yo about plurals – yes, when he takes time off being a police cadet he’s actually a very good teacher. We’d dealt with sheep and sheep – of which there were bounteous supplies. Moving on to slightly more complex plurals the following exchange took place:
8yo: What’s the plural for Octopus?
8yo: No, it’s Octopi
8yo: What’s the plural for Fish?
5yo: Fishy Pie?
