“In our society leaving baby with Daddy is just one step above leaving the kids to be raised by wolves or apes.”
Today I had to drive down the dreaded Stratford Rd, one of the worst roads in the whole of Birmingham. Regardless of the time of day and the rush hour status of the rest of the city, the Stratford Rd always looks like everyone on it has broken down at the same time! It will be one of the last days I have to drive down here for some time, and on top of crawling along in first gear at walking speed, the 30ºc sunshine had disappeared in favour of relentless rain and 16ºc temperatures! My one saving grace is that the alarm clocks are off and can stay off tomorrow, no getting up early! We will have to grab the last few bits from the flat in the morning and spend the rest of the day emptying boxes and black bags. Things are starting to come together!
