So The Poop can clap. And she can wave. Never in front of the audience I've just bigged her up to, but when there's not a soul about to witness it she'll wave, chat and solve mathematical equations till the cows come home.

But she cannot grasp this crawling stuff. Forwards anyway. She can back up like a good 'un. She can whizz round in a circle like something gone wrong.

No joy. I've even tried actually manipulating her legs so she gets the idea of how to move, but she just cries at me like this must be another gem from Gina Ford. Or the Rose West School Of Parenting. I always confuse those two.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.
