What’s more, a robot could tell you this.

Please prove you’re not […]

This year was the 50th Scout Guide regatta, held down at Snug and attended by about 1000 Scouts and Guides of all different ages (they even let Cubs come this year!). Most of our troop attended, and we had quite a noticeable presence in among the tents because Skip (Georgie) and a few of the Scouts […]

12 of 12, March 2013

Today was one of those days where I half-forgot about 12 of 12: it never came to mind when there were vaguely interesting things happening (I managed to find a formal evening dress … which, given my lack of self-confidence when clothes shopping, was a truly miraculous event … but one which, for now at least, […]
