  1. And I’m completely screwed because Mother’s Day (or Mothering Sunday as we prefer to call it) is in March.
    Then again, my parents live in France, so maybe I should just follow your example…

  2. Yea… you probably should. It’s not like Mothering day means much more than an income bump for the flower and chocolate industry…

    BTW, am I correct in remembering you were from Stoke (on Trent) originally? I just read smth about your charming little town in the Guardian. Seems your city folks are all turning brown shirts these days… 8-|

  3. erm, think i am going to do the typical North American or Japanese thing…

    Well, technically i am from Stoke On Trent. Yes, I was born there, and it is forever etched in my passport.
    However, my mum & dad are both proud southerners. Dad’s from Bromley & Mum’s from Mitcham (which isn’t much of a step up from Stoke, but hey….)
    So, you see, I am not from Stoke On Trent. I’m actually from London 😉

    (Never EVER thought i would hear myself say those words…)

    Not surprised about Stoke though. There’s always been race problems there. Friendships were pretty much along race lines. Also, it’s very close knit there – everybody’s family lived within walking distance. I was a weirdo in school because my parents spoke ‘different’…
