Is this coat to die for or what? @2ctorkia found this in a charity shop in Hampstead. So guess what I’m doing next weekend??? Charity shopping in London Town!
Now onto more pressing matters - TIME for a RANT!
So What am I Effing and Blinding about and to who this week? It is PARENTS yes you heard it - PARENTS. Parents in big fat ugly 4X4 chariots used to transport their beloved offspring to school. YES you guessed it, I am a resident that has the misfortune of living in the same road as a sought after Ysgol Cymraeg (Welsh school) ‘sought after?’ ‘Welsh?’ I hear you hark - well bilingualism is a big thing here in Wales - that is being able to parlez in Welsh and English 🤔
Anyway I reckon about 90% of the kids in this Ysgol do not actually live within its catchment area because none of them walk .. NO start again - None of them are carried or pushed further than 10 meters from chariot to school gate. Trying to get in and out of my road between 8:30-9am and 2:45-3:15 is absolutely impossible. In fact it’s bloody Mayhem - in actual fact it’s worse than anything I’ve experienced in CAIRO, so it’s bloody carnage! There are grotesquely obese chariots everywhere - on pavements, on Kerbs, on corners, up lampposts 🚏opposite and even IN your drive ( that seriously happened once!) The brazen attitude of these parents pisses me off to the max - they literally don’t give a 💩 and have no regard for any of the residents. They drive like .. well like a parent in a 4X4, with such self righteousness and entitlement that they can literally see no further than the end of their cyclopean bonnets.
Now I realise that many of you are parents who want the best for your little ones, which many of you believe means sending them to school wherever the trend is. Mine always attended the local school wherever we lived. Once they were in high school they bussed it, biked it or walked - none of this bloody fussing and carting back and forth - totally unhealthy, unnecessary and uneconomical. So NO to parents driving 4X4s unless they live in the Sahara and want a place in a trendy Ysgol Cymraeg! Rant over! C’est tout! #walktoschool #dontblockmyfuckingdriveagain
