My son Mike is here from Japan. Well, he's not here at the moment- he's in Bolton drinking in the New Year with his mates- but he'll be returning- some time around the crack of dawn- to a blow up mattress in our front room. It's good to see him again. It's been something like two years since he was last home.
If this is a little thin it's because the computer now sits shoulder to shoulder with the TV and Ailz is watching some programme about the things the celebs got up to in 2006 and I'm having to give it half my mind....
Ooh, can you believe that about David Hasselhoff?
And now she's turned it off. Oh good.
And I've remembered what I wanted to write about. I wanted to write about how they hung Saddam Hussein and George Bush slept through it and 77 people were killed in the immediate aftermath and isn't it good that Iraq is now a democracy?
