Possibly not an historically accurate representation.
Well comrades, it seems to be an unending cavalcade of horribleness this week; Japan, Libya, the cat next door.
I’ve been trying to make sense of it all but every time I’ve sat down to write something I just get too depressed and end up staring moodily out of the window, which doesn’t do anybody any good.
In the meantime, The Boy is very excited about the Saint Patrick Day celebrations at his primary school*.
Not many people know that Saint Patrick was probably originally from Wales but in what was a piece of very successful sixth century spin, the tourism authorities back then realised the Welsh do not have a reputation of roistering, good-natured drunks and thus the decision was made to focus on the Irish portion of his CV.
Hope you all have fun tomorrow.
*And no, the school won’t be serving green coloured beer.
It will, of course, be serving ordinary beer**.
** Possibly not true.
