Summer Holiday Homework

    Dexter goes back to school tomorrow and I feel a little blue. I’ve loved spending so much time with him this summer holiday because I’m normally stuck in an office for those six weeks whilst simultaneously selling a kidney on eBay to pay for the...

Blue Lightning

    Let me introduce you to Blue Lightning (above.)   I’ve had him for over eight years and he’s part of the family … well, as much as a car can be. (I know how weird this sounds, believe me.)  I’ve mentioned the poor bashed up back window (not...
