I’d place my arm around her shoulder, guide her gently to one side and have a quiet word. Gobby woman to gobby woman. Coming from your Aunty Anne, a prolific chatterer, to say, “think before you speak”, is quite something. In fact, I’d go so far as to say, it’s (earth-shattering) pertinent and important to […]
I’d play a game of ‘Let’s see who can stay quiet, the longest’. Russell, sweetheart, it’s time to stop talking. One must know how to recognise that moment when it comes, and accept it. And more than that, one must know one’s limits. And you have well and truly reached yours. Fingers on lips, while […]

I’d say; “Dear heart of mine, dear, dear, sweet, handsome boy. Sweet heart, darling Jude: STOP GETTING WOMEN PREGNANT ALL OVER THE BLOODY PLACE. *siiiiiiigggghhhhhhhh Did your mother never give you ‘the chat’, when you were a wee small boy?

(Maybe not that last one), […]
After a holiday that seemed to go on for ever, and yet somehow seems non-existent now, I started back to work-full schedule-this week. It was surprisingly lovely to get back into the office, see some familiar faces, and meet some new folk too. But, I’ve also discovered, much to my chagrin, that I worship at […]
Isn’t it just the loveliest thing, when people are genuinely pleased to see you, after a long period of time? Also read, Reasons why I love my job #8 First week back to my regular students. Happy days.
