    Do you have anything you want to secretly confess? I do. I will start (please don’t judge).

    1. I’m actually quite relieved that eldest has gone back to Uni. I will miss them and will enjoy speaking to them regularly and I do love them very much etc but seriously..... I find the mess and stress and being woken up at all hours really hard.

    2. I have decided I really don’t like one of my colleagues.

    3. I have a secret ‘thing’ for a Northern accent. When our caretaker says ‘we are open seven WHILE six’ it makes me go a bit funny inside.

    Love, OTH x

    I'm Northern, and don't say 'seven WHILE six'. What does that mean?o_O

    Secretly confess? On here? With a worldwide audience?
    Let me think about that...:eek:

    I'm poverty-stricken but because I have class and style people think I'm posh.

    Is there enough time?

    And posts have a word limit. Speaker's Corner might be the spot for you.

    To the person who says "I'd confess but then I'd have to kill you" in the time it takes for me to type this, I confess I'm harshly judging you for being so basic.
    Apart from that I'm an open book...

    I used to actively dislike a number of the kids I used to teach. I was concerned this might show so I made efforts not to let it show, the result was that sometimes those kids thought I liked them and would hang around at the end of lesson which left me a bit conflicted.

    When I was young like most, I yearned to be cool but of course wasn't. The older I got as a teacher, the more kids would describe me as cool when it had become something that I no longer cared about or strived for. It just puzzled me a bit.

    Oh, and I never was a boxer, it was a rumour that went round the school and persisted for years but stood me in good stead.

    Not so much of a confession but I’ve noticed recently that my mum keeps buying clothes in the wrong size, that just happen to be my size, and giving them to me. And she knows I like a certain brand of trainer and just happened to accidentally order 2 pairs so gave one to me. I thought she was getting daft in her old age but it recently occurred to me that with the divorce and everything she’s worried that I don’t have enough money, and knows I’d never take money from her, so keeps ‘accidentally’ buying things that she then just has to give to me. Not ashamed to say I cried for a full half hour when I realised because I’m so damn lucky to have them as parents.

    I thought that Velma from Scooby Doo was a boy in a kilt until I was in my late 20s.

    I'm still laughing ages after I read this. In fact I keep rereading it and laughing some more.

    My home was once raided by the drugs squad. Luckily a case of mistaken identity.
