This is a question Other people's diaries

Never read other people's diaries and email - you'll never find anything nice in there. If it's not just slagging you off, it'll be sordid fantasies you really didn't want to know about, yet have to keep to yourself so as not to reveal how you found out.

So. What have you read 'accidentally' recently?

Next door's kid...
The family opposite where Mrs. God lives (and I mostly inhabit, until the M event) includes a little girl of about six. She's cute as a button (although without the big holes to put thread through). Actually, when I say "family", I really mean "woman with two kids and no bloke in sight". Mrs. God and I have this theory that if we actually get married and have a child, we'll be chucked out for letting the side down or something.

Anyway, back to the story... We got an unexpected brown envelope through her door. Naturally, unexpected brown envelope = brown trouser moment, so we nervously open it... to find that it's a letter from the council's Education department to the woman next door. Seems this child has missed somewhere around 1/3 of her school time this year. "Oops" quoth me and the missus. We read on, chimping over phrases like "under observation", "serious problem", and our fave: "legal action".

It's amazing how much of someone's lifestyle you can find out in one two-pager from the council. Anyway, the missus somehow glued it shut again (worryingly well, to be honest), and we'll casually deliver it tomorrow morning, so it looks about right.

Edit: We posted it through. Not heard anything. And I added an extra closing bracket, because I couldn't stand to see it missing. And if you've read *that* embarrassing entry, you could make up for my shame by clicking "I like this!"
