Sounds perfect! Happily we did have a lovely day with family, dog, garden etc, before the onslaught.

Just to clarify - the sick etc was a child, not me.

And after all that, there’s no medal, just the forlorn hope that you aren’t going to end up doing it all again at 2.00 next morning. Although I have upgraded my wine to a whiskey.

One minute you’re thinking how well Easter’s gone and looking forward to a glass of wine & some TV. The next, you’re cleaning up mountains of sick from the carpet & unblocking the toilet. Heh ho.

Tom and Natasha need a ‘resentment jar’. Every time one of them feels resentful they could put a quid in the jar. They’d save up for that posh flat in no time.

Congratulations to the scriptwriter who won the bet about how many listeners they could annoy with just an invisible haha.

Why oh why were we deprived of the scene involving Kenton trying to give Russ hopping tips?

Write out 100 times: SATS are there to test the schools not the kids. If the school can’t achieve decent results without this they need support/challenge. Parents & kids should not be sucked in to this.

To help integration: English language provision (in accessible places & inc some with childcare), permission to work, access to training & employment support, anti-racism & discrimination work. Things that don’t help integration: shouting ‘These people need to integrate!’
