An ex-boyfriend once accused me of tiring of things quickly. ‘You get sick of cutting your fingernails,’ he said. ‘And there are only ten of them.’ (He was right in a way, I did get tired of him quickly.) I thanked him very much. It was one of the nicest things anyone had ever said … Continue reading Talking about things isn’t actually getting them done

Oh dear, all of a sudden I … Continue reading You asked for tops for boys?
Now I get it when parents say how excited they are about school holidays arriving and then how excited they are about school going back. This two-week break since Easter has been the first of the school holidays that we’ve had (since Elsie only started school this year). And I loved the first week.
