The last week of

1) individuals as client’s rather than corporations
2)haggling for a few pence more to help offset the interest the Claimant will be paying on the interest on their legal expenses insurance loan
3)driving claims forward and being proactive rather than reactive
4)objecting to so called experts who always come down on the side of the Defendant
5)fighting the injustice of the system
6)nagging clients pestering me for their money

I might be proved wrong of course…

Not an exclamation of revelation but a children's museum in Halifax. Travelling on the clearest day for a while the views down the valleys from the M62 were stunning.

Wow, fun galore, a little over priced, although perhaps this impression was only formed after Elspeth was muscled out of doing a lot of the activities by some boisterous and frankly rude, beavers, cubs and brownies. 1st Cottam somewhere in Lancashire, so much for “Akela we’ll do our best”….

What little Elspeth could do before the swarm of light blue jumper brigade squeezed, pushed and bullied their way en masse like a plague of locusts through each zone she enjoyed. Multiple pictures of her and Michael playing in the garage area, sat in cars merrily turning the steering wheel on stationary vehicles.

I don’t recall being so badly behaved as a cub…

Snow in the Garden

It’s been a while since blogging… it snowed on Friday evening and so on Saturday we tried to fashion a snow man in the garden. I’m not a snow expert but the snow wouldn’t stick together. Elspeth suggested using sellotape and glue, she accepted that it wouldn’t work so we just made a few small snowballs and threw them at Sarah and played on the slippery climbing frame.

The birds can now eat their fill as the feeder is refilled.
