weird food

Food is the latest weapon children use against each other. Not in terms of food fights, but my daughter is laughed at for having 'weird' food. Her lunchbox contains home-baked cakes (containing raisins, arrrggghhhh), vegetable soups, crisps that are not Walkers, apples that are not red. Still, thank heaven for small mercies, they've not noticed the areas where she really is weird ;)

Have we not reached a turning point in society when dried fruit is weird?

Anyway, I rushed around this morning cooking cakes ready before school and just about made it. I wish I was more organised.

least favourite

What is your least favourite aspect of your job? Mine is validating html pages, followed closely by doing paperwork.

Does anyone else feel like they missed something earlier in their lives which meant that they ended up somewhere they weren't supposed to be?

Terry Pratchett has a good turn of phrase - the trousers of time opened up due to a problem in the space-time continuum, and I fell down the wrong leg.

don't vote

Or if you do, don't let condescending hollywood actors decide for you.
