Today has been quite a day. I've been celebrating my dad's birthday in a low key way. I went to see my mum and drank a pint of Kentish Ale. But I also picked his ashes up and, on getting home suddenly found myself faced with the problem of where to put them. In the end he's been tucked in next to the booze and by some knives. I think he would have appreciated that.
Also today, my daughter ricocheted off her Space Hopper, into a wall and broke her collar bone. I bought extra chocolate and ice-cream and that, along with her brave spirit, meant we got though the day without trouble.
