Woo, immortalised!

Although I'd like to add that it only applies to our own children. The children of guests should obviously be stuffed full of jam tarts morning, noon and night.

I was thinking of this recently when I was offered a cake by a Scottish colleague as her four-year-old looked on droolingly.

'Will you have another scone, Jenny?'

'Oh, yes please.'

'Can I have one, mummy?'

'NO SIT DOWN AND BE QUIET.'

Ah, the old country.

Love your article and love Jenny's comment. Maybe its Celts, not just Scots, or maybe its Brits. I can relate.

Chwadan! Do you kiss your mother with that mouth? I won't translate what you said because it makes me blush just to read it! You are naughty! Although, I have to admit that the part about lining the walls of a Fiat with petroleum jelly appeals to me...

(No, really what she says is that she intends to terrify her roommate by claiming to suffer from Cambrophilia)
