Why is it that the teenage girl who spent lesson 5 today screaming around the corridors in a high old dudgeon was called Harmony? (Irony?? Made me laugh anyway.)

Why is it that one of the cats will always celebrate my arrival home by doing a poop in the litter tray? ( Perverse gift choice??)

Why is it that digging over and weeding a 12 x14 foot patch of ground covered mostly in grass at the allotment is so satisfying? (Bare ground looks so tidy?? Finding a frog startled me, though.)

Why is it that some mums persist in treating their children so differently, and in a quite unfair way? (She doesn't realise I am 45 and have long since given up caring?? Or that my decisions are no longer any of her business?? Or that my Mary Poppins complex means I don't have to explain myself to anyone but myself????)

Why is it that it's only March but 66 degrees here at Much Malarkey Manor (heatwave!!) and has been thusly for over a week now? (Calm before the cold April storm that is BOUND to arrive as soon as we put some seeds in the ground outside??)

Why is it always spinach that pops up first in the ploytunnel? (Because it doesn't want to be beaten by the lettuce and courgettes who are coming in at a very close second and third??)

Why is it that everyone gets so tense about the Budget when nothing can be done about it? (We like giving ourselves undue stress and something to whinge about, especially as the weather is too good to moan about at the mo??)

Why do people in Audis drive like maniacs? ( Even I can't think of a good answer to that one!)

Why is it that one can never remove an entire blackberry thorn from the end of one's middle finger on their right hand so that every time one types an 'n', 'h', 'u', 'j' or 'i' it really hurts?? (Pruning revenge??)

Why am I sitting here writing a rather poor excuse for a blog entry when I should be outside cleaning my little blue and rather dustified motor car? (Isn't there a law of physics somewhere that says washing cars in full bright sunlight causes paint damage??)

So many questions, so few answers.
