Gifted & Talented 2

      As I was drawing this, I remembered being told off by my son last year for using a “VERY rude word”. Couldn’t think what it could be as I never, EVER swear. Well not that day, and not THAT rude. Anyway, he’d seen a letter I’d written and at the top of […]

In Heir Raising this week I am showcasing a new breed of elderly mothers who you can see whizzing back and forth on the school run.  One of these is my friend Gummy Mummy.  Her obstetrician called her ‘an ancient prima-gravida’ – an upgrade, or downgrade if you like from the ‘elderly primagravida’ he called […]
