modern "girls" can't cook?

This article based on a survey taken by the Guides Association tells us the dreadful news that girls today don’t know how to boil an egg.

I appreciate that the article is based on research done by an all-female organisation, but surely the emphasis should be that young people (regardless [...]

busy ...

So much is going on here, hence my beginning of month silence – lots of work, my Open University course has started, I’m slowly disappearing under a mountain of paperwork that must be done while I can still see my desk… but we’re fine.

I have been informed that the [...]

working another weekend...

The problem with both working and playing online means that I rarely leave the computer. Work and play seem to merge seamlessly (and scarily) into one. Thankfully my Open University course starts at the beginning of February which will force me to leave this chair and do some reading – [...]

too busy to blog

I just realised I haven’t updated this since the 9th… you wouldn’t believe I spend all my time in front of a computer! This site is like the piles of personal emails I have in my inbox, that I need to reply to, and then I look at the date [...]

long absences again...

It isn’t that I have nothing to write about, sometimes I come here, to add to this, and can’t think of how to say what I wanted to say.
