My nephew and his girlfriend became parents on 25th June. Their new daughter is called Polly and is adorable.

Today, at the bingo, my Mother showed the one hundred and eigthty eight photographs I'd taken to her friends.

Two things I can't work out:

  1. Why would someone want to look at almost two hundred photographs of someone they don't know and have never met?
  2. How do people feel no shame in ruining photographs by wiping their greasy fingers all over my Mum's lustrous prints?
Some people make me feel physically sick.

On the way down to Bournemouth, I heard, on the radio, about the new EU treaty. I simply cannot believe a right wing German leader wants to protect the rights of the individual and a left wing British leader wants to opt out.

The world is a topsy turvy place.
