This week my children came home with another rain forest worth of paperwork from school - this time it was ICT codes of conduct to sign, so they learn to use the school intranet responsibly. It all seemed a bit nannyish, until a few days later when I read someone's blog, and it occurred to me that some grown ups ought to watch what they type.
To most of us writing a blog ought to be complete fact, or a total work of fiction - when you start muddying the waters of truth with too much artistic licence you’re on thin ice.
This is an even more risky game when you attempt to get cheap laughs at a friends expense.
So, as you can imagine, I was really disappointed to see that yet again, a blogging friend of a friend had done just that.
You know, life is funny enough, and if you actually possess a sense of humour, the irony of some situations is enough to make your sides ache, it doesn’t require any ‘tweaking’.
