I wasn’t going to come in today but Ollie hurt his hand so his mother cancelled the lesson – the second one this week that’s been cancelled, along with Tom and Owen’s on Tuesday, as they’ve got to study for their exams, which means I’m… Read more →

It’s a weekday but what the hell, I’m going to set up if The Bitch is working or not…and it doesn’t look like she is – good! The temperature – good, too: late 50s I reckon, in the old style.
