This quote comes from my mother. I think my mother discovered great freedom once we all went to school. So any attempt to stay at home because we were sick was always greeted with the above saying.
Apart from days where we were covered in spots or swollen with the mumps, mum always announced when we said we were sick the above statement.
The really annoying thing was she so often than not was right. We trudge off to school feeling miserable because we couldn’t stay home and once there everything seemed to be ok, despite the fear of Mother De Paul belting us with the cane for making any mistakes in our work.
For me as I grew older I came to realise that school was a much better place to be, you had friends there, than staying at home pretending to be sick.
