Attempt 732 to Get Weasel to Recognise the Alphabet

Let’s start off with the admission that I have zero patience; not that this is any kind of revelation to those who know me personally. These kids are born, why can’t they bloody well read straight away?! What do you mean they can’t understand basic mathematics? How can they not see the difference between green […]

Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs at the Southbank Centre

A Londoner-friend had texted me a photo of the Les Enfants Terribles production of Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs a few weeks back after she’d seen photos of us going in fancy dress to Roo over at London with a Toddler’s birthday party based on the books.

Weasel Goes All Eurovision

Yes, Eurovision is important enough to keep the Weasel up until 11pm. It really actually is in our house. For all of you who don’t know what Eurovision is, it’s an amazingly awesome, camp, terrible song contest and I love it. And Weasel loves it too. Here is her official commentary on the acts: France: […]
