Me again. Grey, cold and horribly February. This first half term of the year is always the most challenging for parents trying to find edifying and outdoor things for their offspring. We have ended up in some ghastly Mr Blobby/inflatable dinosaur style places over the years in a vain attempt to keep the young ones from the gates of boredom.

Over priced food and drink, monstrous 'entertainment' that fails to impress anyone combined with that feeling you've been fleeced, is a half term treat I don't miss at all. I played chess with child 3 yesterday and lost twice but at least I wasn't in a field being chilled to the bone, eating fluorescent food and smiling grimly. Progress indeed!


Brits were all lovely yesterday I thought with a slick and professional show which will have sold well around the world. Muse were the standout for me-a great show opening and glad the Jubilee line got us there in time. When things go well there are the wearysome voices complaining that there was no 'rebellion' or 'attitude'. These are the same folk who complain when it is unprofessional and shabby. So let's hear it for GOOD BEHAVIOUR, our oldies theme today. Behaving well. Who'd have thought it.


Food from Nigel today (wasabi somethingorother) washed down with a hard-working beverage (I'm guessing 12%).

Have a respectful and well-mannered Thursday, see you after 5

    Good morning everyone and a special hello to Gazza.... hope all is well for you, Gaz!

    Jennie.... don't start me on numbers as I have a few obsessions about numbers. One of them is when I fill up my car at our local garage where the guys know what I'm like! I have to stop the amount at two even numbers...ie £60.60 so as I'm nearing my target I have to edge it along so as not to go to the next number, especially if the tank is full. My favourite number is 7 and I prefer single odd numbers or numbers that match, like 44, 77 etc.

    Good morning one and all - tis trying to snow again - hope it doesn't come to anything.

    Good to 'see' you again Gazza - glad you are ok.

    I like even numbers except the number 27 - if you watch tv for a while, you'll be amazed at how many times the number comes up - door numbers, bus numbers, spoken in dialogue etc etc. I have to have the volume on the tv on an even number or 27 - goodness knows why!

    Parky is another one, brass monkeys....... etc....

    But oh, so sunny :)

    #104 - Amelia - I'm with you on that peculiarity. I prefer prime numbers where possible (and my current age IS one). I have nominated 42 as an honorary prime number as it has certain special qualities for those of us of a particular age group. Something to do with a radio show / TV show / film / book / T-shirt etc., etc., I suspect.
