Email from my feckless brother:”Checked in to the Blog for the first time in a while today…….it seems you were unhappy with the level of sympathy your rash was getting with the
family and turned to your blog readership for some more.
Good to see the Blog still survives notwithstanding the pressures of parenthood, ‘serious’ illness and gainful employment. Strange to see you out past your bedtime when I called last night…..hope you had a good night”
I think that’s a very commendable and brotherly sort of email. Telling it straight and yet no eviseration or excoration involved.
In fact, I’d be proud if I’d written something like that to my feckless and self-indulgent sibling….
Heather, that is the correct response. Jack, go to the back of the class.
The cheeky b…. – erm – brother.
No, no pog, right the first time.
