As children, me and my brothers once held a snail race...
Thank you Catherine!
'Landfill', 'tax' and 'offsets' - not usually three words I get
particularly excited about but right now they may as well be 'Strictly'
'Come' and 'Dancing' for the effect they are having on my adrenalin
It was my 20 year college reunion this month. This was a sobering
occasion (only metaphorically of course - in reality it was anything but
- as evidenced by the fact I had to be tethered to a chair at 2am with
the words "it's for your own safety Dawn"). No the sobriety in question
was a result of my realising I had the immense good fortune to study
history at one of the world's leading universities and yet the week
before my mind had mostly been exercised with the question of grass
"But darling, you must have a theme!"
Even as I spoke these words I realised I'd become one of those
appalling mothers who needs to get a grip, but I couldn't help myself.
You see, this was my son's birthday we were discussing and there is
nothing I love more than over-thinking a kid's party
