  • I have written and deleted so many posts here about the news coming out of Belfast.

    I guess what I’ll say is that the verdict doesn’t surprise me one bit.

  • I was informed by my six year old this evening that children in Australia don’t spend much time in school on Maths or English. Instead, most of their lessons are about surviving the spiders and snakes. #parenthood
