P is for Phonetic: An English Spelling is Phucked Alfabet

I’m not one of the world’s great spellers. I blame English. Below I’ve expressed my frustration (with some swears apologies). If illustrated this could be a lovely baby board book or frieze for a child’s room. Aa A is for Art. Apparently. Not R, because that would be easy. Rseholes. Bb There are two Bs… Read Post »

Five things to avoid when visiting new parents

                    1. Poo on the carpet Yes, their carpet will almost certainly be pooed on in the next two years, but that doesn’t mean you should be an early adopter. The last thing new parents want to do in their sleep-deprived state is to dab at… Read Post »
