  • The one where I review the Christmas ads 2 weeks ago Work was crazy last week. I write about adverts, and the first week of November now seems to be when all the big U.K. advertisers release their Christmas commercials. I sat through, and then wrote about, at least a dozen festive offerings, then felt surprised when I went back into the real world...

  • Am I really that disorganised? 1 month ago I used to pride myself on being pretty organised when it came to the kids.Not to the point where I'm arranging their clothes in matching colours, or booking playdates a couple of months ahead or signing up for things like schools several years in advance. No, that's just scary.But I write things in...
  • Tears Before Bake-Off time 2 months ago My two boys love The Great British Bake-Off. And I'm wondering. Am I alone?Nine-year-old Littleboy1 in particular seems to be fascinated by this show, which in itself is strange as, of the two, he is the more traditionally "boyish".  (His brother, meanwhile, has been known to say he wants to be a...

Have enjoyed reading your blog, I visited USA for the first time this year for my son's wedding in Central Park, NY. I actually started looking at ex-pat blogs as he and his new wife have moved to China directly after their stay in NY, as I know his wife is doing a blog also,but via Twitter. I had wondered if any one else was in the area that they were to see what others are writing about the place, but there were not any in the same area as them. Then I looked at India, New Delhi in particular as my husband and I were ex-pats there for a time. Then I looked at USA, and NY in particular and found your blog, which I found interesting and amusing, hope your knees get back to normal soon.
