Me: You’re not eating it.
Her: It’s in my mouth, look.
Me: Yes, but you’re not chewing.
Her (chewing slowly): Look, now I am.
Me: But, you’re not swallowing.
Her (swallowing an infinitesimal amount): I am.

The famous blog of an English woman fired by her employers in Paris for her blog which barely mentions them. She is a mother of one and has split from her French partner. These are the bare facts.

This is a site that features different bloggers every day. It can be hit and miss but I’ve enjoyed some good stuff here. I like their daily round up of parenting news as well you know, this kind of thing: expert blames parents for bratty kids.
