Too much information

The usual low-level stress of the school run has been cranked up a notch by the appearance, over the summer holidays, of lots of red signs along our picturesque route screaming 77 CASUALTIES IN 3 YEARS.

Suddenly taking the children to school seems positively foolhardy and irresponsible, and the ten minute journey though lovely Cheshire farmland as fraught with danger as solo circumnavigation of the globe in an inflatable dinghy.

Dear India,

'inflatable dingy'--keep that thought. If the rain doesn't stop soon you're going to need it whatever!

Lots of (damp and frizzy) love,

Don't tempt me, both of you. Given the state of my house and the amount of work I have to do the dinghy idea is pretty appealing...
