The Best Days of our
1. Schooldays - Gervase Phinn
Ah, schooldays. The teachers we loved and loathed, the
summer holidays that seemed to last forever. Itchy woollen
socks, scuffed knees, conker battles lost and won, and the
days when a carefully placed school jumper could easily
double as a goalpost at playtime. For many of us, these were
the best days of our lives.
Compiled by bestselling author and former school
inspector Gervase Phinn, this wonderful collection of
childhood memories is an irresistibly nostalgic medley of
the triumphs, traumas, joys and sorrows that made our
schooldays impossible to forget.

2. Grandchildren - Gervase Phinn
“Grandma, your face needs ironing.”
“Grandpa, who’ll fetch the chips when you’re dead?”
Grandkids – don’t you just love them? They can make you
smile with joy or cringe with embarrassment; make you feel
twenty years younger, or like you date back to the Ice Age.
And who better to share his thoughts and feelings about
these lights of our lives than Gervase Phinn: bestselling
author, former school inspector and, most importantly,
grandpa? This uplifting compilation of reminiscences, jokes
and anecdotes will have you laughing out loud at the
entertaining things our little treasures do and say.
