Random thoughts

Bullocks, Gok Wan, machine guns and arteries – the sort of things we all think about it every day. Well, maybe not ALL of us. Maybe just my kids. Mainly my eldest at that.

Is Gok Wan dead?

Mummy, after school can I go to the field of bullocks and try bull fighting?

Mummy, do you think I’ve burst one of my arteries?

Do you think in World War II you could have a massage from a machine gun when they weren’t in use?

Did you know that some people nowadays are fatter than Henry VIII?

What is your worst animal, Mummy? Mine’s pigeons or seagulls.

If you smoked, would you like the smell of other people smoking?

What do French chavs sound like?
