24 Hour Drinking - I told you so!

After all the fuss and hassle over the 24 hour drinking licence, look what's happened.


Let me show you some quotes from the BBC:

'Business as usual' in city clubsPolice say the first Friday night of 24-hour drinking in Sussex and Surrey passed off peacefully.

Smooth start for 24-hour drinkingNew licensing laws allowing 24-hour drinking begin without the widely predicted violence and bad behaviour.

So, is all went well? Are all the people who where SO against it eating their words?

Cold night deters rowdy drinkersPolice say cold weather in Kent helped the first Friday night with longer pub opening times pass off peacefully.

Weekend 'big test for drink laws'Police say the first weekend of 24-drinking in Kent and East Sussex will be an "unknown quantity" for the force.

Mmmm, so it was just a coincidence that violence etc didn't rise, is it? Well, on the news this morning (not on the bbc site yet), guess what? The SAME APPLIES to the weekend! SHOCK HORROR! Look, we're not all screaming, murderus lunatics because we can drink when ever we want!

And, you see how it says up there "Weekend big test...." blah blah blah. Well, as we seem to have passed that test, the test is now going to be the Christmas period.

For gods sake, the majority of people are sensible, reasonable humans who know how to act socially.

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
