Jeez, well, this week’s been interesting. Welcome to what the lovely Dame Edna Everage would call, ‘my gorgeous life’ in all it’s technicolour glory! (Phnark.) So, this week McMini had pukka actual gastroenteritis. He started feeling ill, was sick a lot, and then he was sick a bit more and then, just for a change […]

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. I have never been skiing before, for the simple reason that from the age of about twelve I’ve been under doctor’s orders not to. Some of you will know this, some won’t, but basically, my […]

I’ve just been reading an excellent post on Jim Webster’s blog about education. 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 […]

Well, that’s everything done for another year despite a small level of assistance from the chaos fairies.
