I have detected a certain antipathy towards my vitriolic outbursts of late, so in the spirit of Martyn Lewis, I will instead focus on a 'good news story' in order to redress the balance a little.
Life is short and sometimes brutal, suffering is all around us and we are on a crash course with the environment. City are playing crap football, and England are out of the European Championships. But, Sunday is Mother's Day, so it should be a time for us all to remember our mums and say a big thank-you to them for all that they have done for us. For us to think, all those years ago, of the maids in service who would be given the one weekend off in the year to go home and visit their mothers. All hail Cybele, the great Earth Mother!
