So how’s it going? How are the children? How are you enjoying the summer holidays? At the moment of writing I am five weeks in and counting the days until school goes back in September but by the time you read this I shall be on our actual Summer Holiday an eight hour flight away and may be of the opinion that I quite enjoy having the children around so much. Assuming I got everything done before I left which, as we arrive back two days before the beginning of school, is getting everything ready for school- shoes, name tapes, winter coats, the works.
But enough about me and my First World Problems. I am here to offer you diversion: some amusing, some interesting and some a little sad. It’s the giant hotpotch I like to call Good Reads August 2014.
