The Perils of Holidaying.

I hate holidays; they never work out.  We get anxious, effort to get there, effort to return; nothing but trouble and expense. Not this one; The Best Holiday of My Entire Life!!! But still there is a problem! We had to come home! Stupid, stupid us, we came home.  Elusive support workers, homework gone feral, … Continue reading The Perils of Holidaying.

Let’s Call A Truce For International Women’s Day!

Please read all of this, it is brilliant.

Bubbles and Beebots

It’s International Women’s Day, but you’d hardly know it from the way endless arguments about women’s choices keep exploding the internet.

Child-free Women

You guys are bucking the trend, facing criticism…
