We will miss you so, E-K.

Hilarious!

I was at a childrens party and witnessed one of the dads taking control of a perfectly happy kids football kickabout. He rearranged the boys and attempted to teach them better skills, in that he bullied, belittled and shouted at them. When he had a go at my son and made him cry, that was enough, I intervened and told him kindly not to speak to my son like that. I don't think he'd ever been stood up to before - he drew himself up to his full height of over six foot..... and so did I. Strangely, the children disappeared.

It was the mixture of shock and confusion on his face that amused me. Dickhead.

Good dads are not a given.

Oh he`ll be back never fear. My Elliot is only two and I am already teaching how to lose gracefully.

He seems to like Strictly Come Dancing ...should I buy him a toy gun or go straight for the electrode treatment .What do you suggest ?

Scroblene said...

Ha ha ha!

Philipa, well done that gal...

As an old chum always reminds me when he's been refereeing kids rugby, its the parents on the touchline who are the problem!

BTW L, I've just seen the site for Westonbirt - fabulous isn't it!

Philipa said...

Thanks Scrobs, have you a link to that fab site?

N - I'm sure you're right. And you could always teach Elliot to dance? I love that name, I'm afraid we love the film 'Pete's dragon' in our house (and no it's not a home vid) he's so adorable.

Is this the man you have offered a mattress on the floor of your living room to?

I'd advise against a round of Trivial Pusuit, or Pictionary.

Lock up the spirits.

And the puppy.

Id; Mattress or no mattress, wasn't there a song about that? Back to Youtube...

Lilith, I reckon you're in the main pic on the website for Westonbirt, "that's you that is; in your garden..."

Lucien Modo said...

Lilith, I have finished laughing at this clip now.

idle said...

Can't think of the song you might be referring to, lil. Not the Puppy Song by Harry Nilsson, surely?

Philipa said...

Thanks Scrobs, westonbirt looks lovely :-)

Pop over to my blog if you like - link at Newmania's.

UOK Lilith? RU pining for EK? I guess so. I think he'll be back. This cold turkey idea might be a good one as I'm overdoing it - thank goodness there was no internet when I was at Uni, I would never have graduated.

Lucien Modo said...

This amount of leisure is becoming undignified.

Lilith said...

I am so sorry to be lax. Pig is taking me on long walks....

Philipa said...

You mean you're going to have a toned bod as well as a pretty face? Some people just want everything!

My 1st assignment had to be handed in tonight - it took me from 4pm to print the damn thing and I was 3/4hr late for the lecture. The PC is knacked and tripped the house circuit board. Crikey it's like Uni all over again. Not much went right there either. Next I've got to write 300 words on the painting 'Man Reading'. It's a painting of a man and he's reading. Um....

walks with a cute doggy sound just great :-)

Lucien Modo said...

Computer ennnui..?

Tuscan Tony said...

This was a wake up call for me - we did a baseball morning the other day and I am ashamed to say it was just like that. TT must try harder!

Kitty said...

Is that Competitive Dad? I used to watch The Fast Show when I lived in England.

God how I miss English telly. I don't watch it at all in Australia cause it sucks shit so hard.

Lilith said...

Yes Kit, that's Competitive Dad :-)

Do you still have Home and Away?
