Dear young mothers,

Please stop calling your babies 'little man'. It is not cute, it is not original, it is not even particularly accurate. Surely you have given this child a name, which it would be more sensible to refer to them as? Why don't you use that...? Just an idea.

Cheers, babes.

So I'm on this new diet... it's called stress. So far I've lost about 7 pounds. I spent them on Mexican food.

That sounds kind of poetic, but really it's just what I did last night. A new Mexican place opened down the road, and we are now all thoroughly addicted.

But really, I'm sure I've lost weight recently due to the ridiculous amount of stress the PGCE puts on people. I'm training to be a teacher, as I'm sure you know, and by gum it's hard work. I also forget to eat these days. However, right now I am quite hungry, but I'm more tired than anything so I'm afraid that trumps eating for now... and so does blogging.
