No one else would get away with it…

by Julia on 2 January, 2008

On the 21st December (my 35th birthday for those of you who’d like to send me a card in future!) those lovely people at HM Revenue & Customs sent me a bill for just over £750 for underpayment of tax in the year 2000/01 which I was to pay by tomorrow. In other words 6 […]

Mummy…. I know why I’ve got nits…

by Julia on 1 December, 2007

said lovely, four year old, Ryan shortly before I got out the clippers and shaved his head back to a grade one! “Sweet heart… you’ve done nothing wrong… sometimes when you’re playing with your friends these little bugs jump into your hair”, I reassuringly told him. “No Mummy… I know why I’ve got them” “Oh […]

The story reads: Tentative moves are being made to revisit city status for Maidstone. Cllr Julia Batt raised the question at a borough council scrutiny committee […]
