I am back at work...I feel like blurgh and am too skint to do anything but go home and go to bed........yesterday I sneaked in one of my ultimate favorite feel good movies - Matilda....yeah I know but I like it so there.
I was going to go and see the September Issue but realised it's the same to buy it as it is to go to the cinema and I only have to wait one week to do so.......my patience will just about stretch that far.....I think.
I also saw a documentary called The World's Strictest Parents, about kids being sent out to places like Jamaica to live with some very strict parents - to basically kick their arses and send them home as reformed characters. These loan-a-parents were harsh, but fair - they ruled with an iron fist but loved with a big heart. It does make you wonder how much the household environment is to blame for the state of the 'youth' today. These children went back home with a new found respect for their parents, and themselves. They understood why they were kicking out at the world and why it felt like the world was kicking back. These were lessons that sound so simple but they seemed to be missing the point at home. The saw families that really had things to moan about but were taking it on the chin and still finding things to smile about. As one 'loan-a-parent' said - these wild children can be tamed and they will be tamed...and sure enough she did it.
I just found a quiz a friend had sent me so I thought I would post it on here - so those that care can learn a little about yours truely and those that have a spare moment can send me their answers too!
