Assembly, got it, puppy

1. My son's class are hosting the school assembly. They sing three songs and Aiden reads out his one-paragraph essay on why he loves Canberra. During the songs they all do choreographed movements, but Aiden really gets into moving his body.

2. After a slightly frustrating morning shopping I find both the present I wanted and my favourite cereal at another shopping centre. I had to get the cereal down from a very high shelf with a pair of BBQ tongs, but I managed it.

3. The new puppy that comes to school during the afternoon pick-up seems very taken with me for some reason. I wonder if I somehow resemble the breeders; the first humans it knew before it was sold. Or maybe I'm just a calm presence amongst the crowd of noisy children.
