Scene: kitchen table, evening meal

(Explanatory note: our children get on very well indeed and have a very jolly relationship. For example, Daughter 2 and Son frequently address each other as “Smelly” - in an purely affectionate way, you understand.)

Me:… and did you know that your dad reads my blog?

Son (surprised): You’ve got a blog? What do you write about?

Daughter 2 (patting his hand): Oh, you, I expect.

Son (cheerfully): Hmm, yes, I’ve always felt there should be a website devoted to me.


  1. I love it! That kind of conversation just makes you laugh! Bless them both!!

  2. Scotland is wonderful too - I loved Edinburgh and St Andrews - I'll meet you for tea!

  3. I loved this blog.
    When I told my cousin I had a blog, she got all 'huffy' & sniffed, & said, "what is it, some stupid chat room?"

    My son likes it, & regularly reads it. He says he likes the way I write! I felt so good when he told me that.
