You do follow a fashion of sorts, but not one that will be seen on catwalks in Milan. More in the coffee shops of a local highstreet or on a Saturday afternoon in a busy (and stinking) soft play. Think more hobo sh*t rather than boho chic.
I don't have time to exercise. I've got fat. I'm constantly wired from mainlining diet coke instead of lunch. My phone beeps constantly from the SIX Twitter accounts, four Facebook accounts, instagram and pinterest accounts that I manage from the iphone I'm enslaved to.
The boy is obsessed with Paddington. We went to the cinema to see the film and then on holiday recently he spent his pocket money on a toy Paddington bear. He's even developed a taste for marmalade sandwiches.
