Update for Smug Co-Conspirator Mothers

The news that Guido has been in sole charge of Miss & Ms Fawkes (since Thursday) produced much Twitter cackling from female co-conspirators. Whilst Mrs Fawkes has been supping cocktails in the Hamptons, Guido has dealt single-handedly with potties.

Miss Fawkes (5 going on six) was helpful, mostly, Ms Fawkes (3 going on 13) has exploited the situation to the max. Guido can report that food has been easy to produce and included a nutritional 5-a-day (assuming ketchup counts). Fashion choices have been anarcho-infanto, fortunately the weather has been good.

The launch of Peppa Pig World was a godsend, taking up the whole of Saturday in Peppa-tastic partying – “better than Disney” was the considered expert judgement of the Fawkes girls. This morning Guido took a mere 30 minutes out to blog about the anarchists who wrecked the West End only to discover his own anarchists had repainted the kitchen chairs. Philippe Starck himself would approve as much as Jackson Pollock methinks, on the other hand Mrs Fawkes when she returns tomorrow night may take a dimmer view. The Nanny texted on Saturday to say she could come in to help on Sunday if need be. Guido took that as an affront to his paternal abilities… thank God she is back for breakfast tomorrow…

Quote of the Day

Lewis Goodall opines

“Remainer readers may dislike Mr Farage – they may dislike his style, his rhetoric, his approach – but he cannot be faulted for his appreciation of strategy. If his opponents don’t up their game – and fast – he will beat them, just as he did before.”
