Aroogah! Aroogah! Let’s kick off with a profanity warning: there will be some. There. So if you don’t like the F word, do not read this. Especially do NOT read this all the way though and then complain it’s full of swearing or I will flipping well lamp you. And if you’re a bit iffy […]

Not that I’m melodramatic or anything … mwahahahahargh! This holidays, McOther, McMini and I joined another family of friends skiing.

If you haven’t tried Jim’s blog you really should, all his posts are thought provoking, interesting and grounded common sense. Jim is smart. He talks about education: what we should teach our children, what he’d like to see them taught, how we […]
