Is it just me confused by gender?

No wonder school children are stressed and confused. We tell them they have to work really hard on their exams or be left behind on the good job thing, get taught the facts of life on how babies are made and how to prevent babies being made.

Is it just me considering book form?

It it just me thinking about our relationship with presents?

I'm thinking back to my birthday several weeks ago. As you may remember I did a blog specifically on birthdays at the time (Is it just me musings on the decades). So thinking about this is still on my mind. I love buying presents for people. I have previously blogged about my erring on the side… Continue reading It it just me thinking about our relationship with presents?
