Several things have pleased me in the paper today – Libby Purves, in support of binding pre-nups, referring to marriage as “a good gig” for example, and I laughed most of the way through Caitlin Moran’s piece about what age to allow your children to do things such as swear, have a mobile phone, wear earrings and be informed that there are beaches in Normandy where the tide comes in faster than a galloping horse. I can’t find it online – maybe they put Times 2 things up later? Anyway, it demonstrates that I don’t have quite enough to do with my time today, as I have had time to read the paper. Both papers. I might even do the crossword later.
Of course, I could do a whole lot in the garden, which is a mess, or I could clean the house, in which most surfaces are covered in dust and I could tidy the house, which will just leave gaps in the dust or I could clean the windows, although that will just make the dust more visible. But it’s been rather enjoyable to read the papers on a Monday morning.
And, if you do find and read Caitlin’s article, I’d just like to mention that Ro, as a child, used to call me Swear Queen. With a certain mild disapproval.
PS – Martina has found the article and sent the link – here Thanks, Martina!
