I chose this title because the last thing you expect your four-year-old daughter to say is: ‘Are we going to my production today?’  Noor joined a ballet class a few weeks ago, and today she played the starring, leading role of a little flower.

… it’s the taking apart!  I saw this written on a bill board in London ahead of an England v France rugby match.  One letter and a truely English play on words.

Actually it was a couple of the players who knew what they were doing. The rest had no clue where the ball was, and some didn’t even care.  It was great fun to watch and the weather was great considering the start of the week that we’ve had.
