"You hear laughter breaking through, it makes you want to fart. You’re heading for a breakdown, better pull yourself apart. " - John Cooper Clarke


>Coralie and Tatiana BOTH passed their driving tests yesterday which contributes to one of many reasons why no one else should drive in Brussels from now on. So apart from your carbon footprint and being at risk from other drivers, why not stop driving in this country altogether so that I shall never have to worry about anyone smashing into either of my daughters. Selfish, but I have a point.

When Coralie popped around to look after That Rabbit who, I learned, is going to be here until MID-SEPTEMBER, she tried talking me into buying her a car. Nice one, sweetheart, but your mum is going to be queuing up for the dole at the end of next month unless something comes along very soon.

As she got on her bicycle to go back to her dad’s I suggested that she looked at the sign-posts on the way. As she started off she shouted over her shoulder:

“Oh mama, I don’t have to worry about them anymore.”

No wonder Belgian drivers have such a bad reputation.
