For the Christmas Blog this year, I was going to do a blog based around Oasis song lyrics, but I had another idea, when that happens, you gotta roll with it.

Well, that was fun. Completely unexpected and downright crackers, but fun nonetheless. Over the course of the last few years, I have brushed against fame and I find that “they” are really very ordinary. “They” are doing a job and “they” have good days and “they” have bad days.

Make the Ordinary Come Alive Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable, but it is a way of foolishness. Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples, and pears. Show them how to…

So Summer is here. I haven’t got time to do a big Blog at the moment because I am supposed to be doing invoices, drawing up planting plans and quietly planning World Domination. So I will just leave you with two nuggets of priceless conversation from the last week. My lovely, lovely Lad is in…
