birthday parties and moving house

I survived the small person’s 5th birthday party yesterday, and was only pinned in the corner by insane five year olds once during the proceedings! The next challenge is moving house, and therefore office, in the next week.

Drew and I tackled cleaning and packing in the small person’s room [...]

extra hours in the day needed

… if anyone has any spare ones, just send them this way, even slightly used hours would be greatly appreciated. Soon, I might be able to tell you about some of the things I’ve been busy with – you never know!

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 [...]
