Fantastic, I thought. Lots of lovely blog posts to read as I have now set aside weekends to catch up with blog reading and Open University reading. It's the new streamlined, organised me (stop laughing at the back). Also, being slightly obsessive about organisation, I have my blogs divided into folders; Must Read, Random, Life & Style... and I scroll through them in order, soaking everything up.
This is what I am seeing at the moment:

I am constantly trying to find my identity. I don't particularly like names or pigeon holes but there seems to be nothing to describe me. Am I a first? A unique?

So, when I logged onto Twitter this lunch time I was VERY surprised to read the following:

"If you fall off there and break your leg, don't come running to me!"I may have taken my harsh form of parenting one step too far back in 2006 on a day trip out to Blackpool:
"Your arm is sore? Oh, stop moaning. It's not hanging off, is it? We'll go and get an ice cream."

However, well fitted, comfortable leather shoes are important and as I dug a little deeper into the Hotter Shoes website I saw a few styles and colours that I really liked. I plumped for a pair that I could use for work so that I could give them a fair test.

A MOTHER who left her son of 14 to mind his three-year-old brother while she went to the shops was given a police caution for “cruelty” and was suspended from work.
Last night the case ignited a debate over when it is acceptable for parents to briefly leave older siblings home alone as carers.(source: Daily Express, 07.02.11)
How much information is missing? If every parent who "nipped to the shops" was arrested and cautioned, how much police time do you think this would take up? On what grounds did the police consider that this mother was guilty of cruelty? Was it really 30 minutes or had it been a few hours? Was this a nosy neighbour sticking their beak in or had there been a number of reported incidents leading up to this arrest and conviction?
