Rituals, Ceremonies and Superstitions

The weekend provided me with a mixed bag of activities.

At the beginning of last week, one of my newly acquainted twitter chums reminded me of the separation anxiety caused by the Key Stage 2 residential trip.

I would have been quite happy to have changed my name to George, taken ownership of a dog called Timmy and regularly rowed to KirrinIsland for lashings of Ginger beer

Hezus – Shaddap!

Saturday night, was a grown up dinner night at Sumosan. We met up with a couple who’s wedding we attended, almost two years ago.
