- I've been avoiding blogging for fear I will not be able to stop myself launching into a 80-paragraph feminist rant about Conservative plans for a tax break for married couples. As far as I can tell, my corner of blogland has not turned into a sloth of angry politicised bears. But if any of you want to see one, let me know.
- The good thing about the General Election is that there is more of The Now Show, which is now playing every night. I do love a nice bit of satire, and once a week just doesn't cut it. But why all the men? Why do Mock the Week and QI and Have I Got News for You constantly present deskfuls of men, men and only men? I'm quite willing to believe that David Mitchell and Dara O'Briain are funnier than anyone else on the planet, but I'm pretty sure you could find any number of women who were funnier than Jeremy Clarkson, even if they had had their heads surgically removed.
- Eldest has to make a World in a Box, complete with a river, before going back to school on Tuesday. I have no clue how to go about this. I think I'm going to have to ask for your help again - I call, ye sorceresses, &c, &c...
- A friend and I took our children crab fishing. These are the crabs we caught.
What makes this even more tragic is that we took three buckets with us to collect them in. But finding out that you could amuse children for an hour by giving them a string with a bit of raw bacon on the end? That was worth doing.
