Lessons from Edinburgh
After my 11-year-old daughter wrote ‘Manchester is the capital of Scotland’, I decided a little geography lesson was in order. Just the two of us, for full-on north of the border, half-term fun. I thought she might learn something – not least that the capital of Scotland begins with ‘E’, not ‘M’. But here’s what I learnt:

How can anyone have 'maybe' on their allergens list? Esp McDonalds? Surely consistency is what they do?

Here's my new blog today:

The Limbo of the Young School Leavers

takingparentsseriously.wordpress.com/2014/03/04/the-limbo-of-the-young-school-leavers/

"Most schools do not want these youngsters and they are often viewed as a nuisance... Some schools would have an imaginary class where the Xmas leavers would be marked ‘in attendance’ but in fact never attended because there was no class for them. This looked impressive on the school’s truancy rates."

To be honest with you I wasn’t looking forward to seeing a band who rap. So I thank you from the bottom of my heart for not being stereotypical misogynistic, show off swag fuckery, violence inciting rappers.

My open letter to the band members of Twenty One Pilots who teengirl dragged me to see recently.

It's international women's day! Unfortunately, I am not in a celebratory mood after the most depressing women's event at work that I went to recently. One senior woman without children said she could understand the difficulties I had juggling work and parenting because she struggled with finding time to go to gym! See the whole depressing post at: http://www.shrinkgrowskids.com/2014/03/07/inspiring-women
