‘IT seems like only yesterday that we were in Edinburgh.” It was at this time last year that we spent a weekend in the Scottish capital, and my husband was commenting on the past 12 months having flown by.

‘I don’t like this film, it’s boring,” my daughter commented on The Go-Between, which we forced her and her older sister to watch as part of the old-fashioned upbringing we are trying to thrust upon them.

I got the shock of my life the other day when I spotted my daughter at the wheel of a car. Obviously, I knew she was having driving lessons, but she’s usually picked up and dropped off at school, so to see her motoring down the street was very odd. It seems like only yesterday that I was lurching along as a learner in my dad’s Mini Cooper estate.

Having a posh nursery kitted out at taxpayers’ expense with no doubt hundreds of freebies from solid gold potties to diamond-encrusted pushchairs, I don’t suppose we will see Kate and Wills trawling around the Bucklebury car boot sale or perusing charity shops on Kensington High Street.

IT’S the second week of Wimbledon and already I’m mourning its loss. Not at any other time of the year do I even contemplate turning on daytime TV but during Wimbledon fortnight everything else is abandoned.

My children went through a phase of telling me off. Going through traffic lights on amber, using charity bags as bin liners and swearing – all of which I know I shouldn't do – they picked me up on it.
