watch out

my mum generously got esther a watch when she visited last week. esther loves it.
yesterday we had time checks every 5 minutes.
jane: “when the long hand points to the number 10, that means it’s 10 minutes to the hour”
esther: “that can’t be right, otherwise the long hand would have to go backward to count down to the hour”. (she’s right you know)
my favourite was when she chose to be completely vague
me: “what time is it esther ?”
esther: “just past mid-morning”

  1. that is a lovely watch! my first watch was a similar colour and had a lovely purple “my little pony” on it that you had to flip up to reveal the digital time.
