I try to laugh about it

Still here, staggering on. My broken boiler still shows no signs of life-it huffs and puffs, bangs and clangs but fails to actually generate any heat. Sometime soon an engineer will turn up(another one) and peer knowingly at it, shake his/her head, mutter some incantations then shrug meaningfully. Time to boil those kettles!

Robert Webb today. His memoir ‘How Not To Be A Boy’ has been quite something. When you get a quote from JK Rowling on the cover, you know you’re on to something (not jealous at all). It’s really a meditation on masculinity and the way our expectations of boys and boys behaviour needs to change. And its very funny! And a BOYS PLAYLIST will sound just fine and dandy don’t you think?
