    We left JFK on Tuesday evening and had a pleasant flight back to London, arrived Weds morning.

    Upon arrival it was apparent that my bag had decided to have an extra day checking out the sights of the big apple.

    “No problem sir , it will be on a follow on flight, be delivered by courier tomorrow “ ( there are a number per day )

    So I called this morning to find out the ETA of said courier.

    “ Oh, your bag is still in New York and we don’t know why.. “

    Cue a very deep breath as it wasn’t her direct fault...

    ... followed by counting to 9.999998.

    My MM shirts & Helen’s winter coat that we really need for this weekend are in that bag, as well as the normal wash bag, underwear etc

    It won’t land before tomorrow morning and they couldn’t confirm exactly when it will be available.. we’re leaving for Anglesey in the morning..

    I’m really quite annoyed.

    The daily's packed up. Cooling system problem. It's in the workshop and so far, they're fitting a new water pump and thermostat before they can test if further. I suspect head gasket failure under motorway load speeds. Again.

    BMW needs an oil and microfiber service. On their web site you can price up the job at all the local dealers and get yourself booked in. Simples. At least it would have been if i could have got them to return a phone call. They are happy to take a booking but as soon as you ask them to confirm the price they have to check and never call you back. Having tried 4 times at my local dealer I gave up and went somewhere else. Strangely enough the job is also significantly cheaper at the second dealer.

    Just plain daft and embarrassing for what is supposed to be a quality brand.

    Oh and my service book will now be stamped with the words..... Dick.... Lovett. I hope their are no spelling mistakes

    about to drive into my road and heard a massive bang. Car got egged by some little bellends. Parked up and walked back around and spotted them on bikes. Turned my light off and they tried to go round me but failed. Utterly crapped themselves that I caught them.

    Walked off then they became hard and started hurling abuse Why cant you just give kids a slap like when we where kids

    Not a moan but....

    Chap I've worked with for the last 20 years or so died Monday night. He was 52 years old, had been British judo champion and the masters European champion. Went to judo Monday night and dropped dead. Was talking to him recently about plans for retirement etc. He had it all mapped out.

    Just not right. He was a lovely, lovely man

    Lost a friend a couple of years ago - age wise he was halfway between me and my Dad and was way fitter than both of us. Heart attack in his sleep, dead.

    Really hard to compute tbh. I know where you are Gary and you have my sympathy.

    Lost a friend in a similar fashion, fit and healthy chap, at practice the night he died in his sleep.

    Selling a house I've owned for 20 years.


    Last week buyer says she wants the brick wall repaired down the side of the garden.


    It's a fair point.


    I spend Sunday on it and get about 1/2 way through the job (pull out and replace about 40 bricks). I figure I'll finish it next Saturday.



    Monday I get a notification that she wants to view the house this coming Saturday - oh great, she'll see me working on the wall, never mind.



    Tuesday I get a call from the estate agent, saying she's ready to exchange tomorrow, with a view of completing on 28th (yay!)


    Wednesday I get a call from the estate agent, saying she's been by the house and she can see bricks out of the wall and it's a complete mess and she won't exchange until the wall is done. Apparently, when the estate agent points out she did ask for the wall to be repaired only last week, apparently she gets shouty with them and says she didn't say that. Obviously I point out on the phone that I didn't just take it upon myself to pull a load of bricks out of the sodding wall a few days before I'm due to sell the bloody house.


    So, in a bid to get this sodding house sold, I spent midday until 2130hrs yesterday finishing the wall repair.


    Just to be clear, the subjects of this moan are:


    estate agents
    house buyers
    houses
    repairing 120 year old brick walls in about 5 Deg C
    women
    splinters in fingers - I've had one since Sunday, thought it was gone, but it feckin hurts now!

    CofE primary schools.

    2 of 4 of the best primary schools in my area are CofE and I have strong feelings on organised religion and especially the teaching of it as ‘the truth’. Why do we still persist with the indoctrination of 4 year olds as a firm fixture in our state-funded education system?

    I don’t want to undermine my daughter’s education, but also want her to be in an environment that encourages a broader conversation about religion (half the world believes, half the world doesn’t, there are many different religions, different strengths of faith, there is good in religion, there is bad in religion, make your own choices based on what you feel - I don’t want to project my feelings or anyone else’s onto my daughter).

    In this instance, the argument that CofE schools are better (because of the faith mindset) isn’t borne out - one of those two was abysmal for decades, but is under new leadership and got an Outstanding (the only one in the area to do so). And in any case, there are reasons beyond religion to be kind, tolerant, helpful, happy, hardworking, etc.; it isn’t an exclusive club.

    Anyway, education comes first, I’ll get over it and for other reasons our #1 choice isn’t a faith school *but* I’m really irked by this.

    Simon, like you I have some pretty hard & fast opinions about religion in our household, mainly, to respect the views and beliefs of others and have an understanding of all religions. Personally I'd have had a very difficult decision regarding placing at which school. I don't believe you need "faith" in a greater being/ thing/ deity/ whatever and I would object, pretty furiously, if the school was to teach information of one faith more than another. FWIW I'm not christened, baptised etc and neither are our kids.

    I only went once and have been actively discouraged from going since

    When I got there I was asked initially if I had any questions for them. Oh yes indeed I have 3 and that it....

    1. Does He / She have plenty of friends?

    2. Are they good?

    3. Are they thick?

    In my mind when I was talking about kids who were 5 and 10 that was all I needed to know. They have more than enough time to grow up and be solicitors, brain surgeons etc - I'm happy for them to be kids for a while, so long as they know the basics.

    Funnily enough the teachers agreed and laughed loads at my questions. Emma didn't laugh quite so much and was embarrassed when seeing the teachers at subsequent events

    It is remarkably easy to over complicate life. You’re in little danger of that...

    I fear the ‘Matilda has been telling all the other children that God may or may not exist and that in actual fact if *a* God does exist, then in all likelihood we’re preying to the wrong one’. Erm... but does she have plenty of friends? Is she well behaved? Is she thick?

    Simon,

    Have you studied the school's curriculum and discussed with parents of current pupils to get a feel for their educational setup? It seems to me that you may have confused 'CofE School' with 'Convent'.

    My kids have both been to 3 schools each for a variety of reasons, and the local CofE school is the best by far. It's rated outstanding by Ofsted and produces very well adjusted and caring young people. It's easy for schools to get focused on meeting DoE numerical targets and fail to adequately provide for a child's emotional and mental well-being, and I think the additional CofE oversight helps in that area (and not through solely religious means).

    They study a 'global curriculum', learning about different countries, cultures and religions and using this knowledge to help them apply more standard skills such as maths, writing and art. It's diverse, inclusive and caring. Ignorance breeds intolerance, so I'd much rather prefer my kids to learn about all faiths rather than to have it all closed off so as not to risk 'indoctrination' or some such nonsense.

    So, in summary, you do really need to get over yourself.

    While you're doing that, could you also find a stepladder for me? This horse is awfully high...

    I got over myself relatively quickly. If it is the right school for Matilda for a multitude of reasons, then I’m not going to put her somewhere worse out of principe.

    In our closest school, the vicar is in for his weekly sermon, hymns are sung daily and Christian faith teaching was *everywhere*. My wife is less sensitive on the topic than me, but even she remarked. I appreciate the overriding curriculum, but it did feel faith heavy. Funnily enough, I’d be more than comfortable if the religion of focus was rotated each term. This term, the Rabbi is in once a week...

    The other one, didn’t seem to care for it at all. But in any case, we can’t walk there and parking is a bitch so it is out 3rd choice.

    I think it is about time we ditched the idea of specific religion schools in the state education system. Just leave that to individual families and the religious establishments.

    ***

    I went to a CofE primary and it only turned me off the whole thing, so maybe there is nothing in it. RE, especially the vicar-led stuff, was ****ing dreary and they seemed annoyed by my questions about the whole thing (is that Sikh going to hell? What has he done wrong? Etc.).

    So you're saying that you should judge a school on it's merits and faults rather than whether it's CofE or not? I agree!

    I don't trust the Education secretary to take care of my children's wellbeing, so I'm all for schools which seek to fill in the gaps between unreasonable and unrealistic targets. Individual schools and academies can do that, of course, but I think the CofE system can help a great deal. Your mileage may vary, etc.

    #Metoo. Prayers and hymns in morning assembly every day. I can't think of a single fellow pupil who really took it seriously. I think you just have to trust your own child, and your own parenting skills, to enable them to make up their own mind about what they believe.

    I’m not going to let religion get in the way of the best possible education, that’s for sure. I disagree with the idea of CofE primaries strongly enough to moan about it on the Internet, but not enough to rule out an otherwise good option.

    I am proper irked though. I just don’t think specific religious teachings should be part of the state education system. Wrong place for it. Outside of the school system, fill your boots. I’m very respectful of people’s faith these days and in the case of my own daughter, I’d like her to look at all of it and see if anything resonates.

    As it stands, our #1 choice is non-faith, #2 and #3 are faith schools. #4 should be renamed Arkham. So there is no #4 - we’d go private.

    I think you should calm down and stop being such a bigot.

    If it's a good school, she'll learn to examine things to figure out what she thinks about them. If she's presented with ideas that you don't agree with, even better. One of the trickiest parts of parenting is helping kids figure things out rather than telling them what to think.

    I also firmly believe that education about religions should be mandatory in schools. Ignorance breeds intolerance, after all.

    I also firmly believe that education about religions should be mandatory in schools. Ignorance breeds intolerance, after all.

    Not a moan but shite times.

    Mum passed away today after a long hard battle with cancer.

    Cancer really does suck! Glad shes finally at peace, pain free and happy again.

    So sorry, Kev.

    Like you say, it's for the best, but there's never a good time for the family. All the best to you and yours.

    Sorry to hear that Kev. And you’re right it does suck.

    Helen raised a chunk for McMillan after her on passed, she felt like it was a good way to honour her memory.
    Simon no longer owes me anything, Dave does though.
    Floyd probably owes me at least twenty with the interest rolling up...
