I had a great idea yesterday. As I don’t know anyone who is bossing January this year – has anyone ever bossed a January? – I thought it might be good if we all just forget about it. Call in sick for the rest…

Avoiding Christmas: Bah, Humbug

Today I had my first festive cry of the season. Pretty good as it’s the 29th December and I’ve waited until 2 hours until the kids come home before having my Christmas sob, not so good when you consider the fact I’m presently only…

Hello, Number 3

This year, when I found out we were moving house on 16th December, I wanted to make sure I was smart about the whole thing. Despite not having any huge hosting plans over Christmas, the period running up to the festive season was going to be chock-a-block…
