Lasy night i was having a beer and chatting to the kids. During the conversation i used “don’t put all your eggs in one basket” and I asked them both of they knew what that meant.
Grace without skipping a beat says ” oh yes..that is an idiom!”
Bloody hell I just about fell off my chair
“can you tell me what an idiom is ???”
Grace ; ” its when the words do not mean what they say”
I did fall off my chair.
I cannot imagine any of the UNIS 9 year olds ( or older ) running around here in the compound know what an idiom is so I am very proud of her and it also shows the home schooling is working!
