I see that despite the football, University Challenge is back. Iâ€™m videoing it. I told one of my colleagues this [the one from Northern Ireland, she is entirely unlike anyone else Iâ€™ve ever met from the North, if she were in charge there, it wouldnâ€™t be â€œUlster says NOâ€ it would be, â€œUlster says â€˜oh alright, go on then, if you wantâ€™â€. I digress]. She said â€œOh, my God, what nerds, you are videotaping University Challenge!â€ Pause. â€œI like to watch it liveâ€. Mind you, I’m glad that I didn’t given her extra ammunition by telling her that we were going to spend the bulk of our evening organising our Summer holidays on a spread sheet. Look, it’s complex: the creche is closed for a month, the Princess has 9 weeks off school and our childminder is going to the Philippines for 5 weeks. Is there anything as dull as other people’s childcare arrangements? Perhaps I should stop while I still can.
