Happy to co-sign anything you might send to the European Commission, or to just scream into the void with you ❀️

Such a great read! Releasing the children as revenge for disturbed sleep- brilliant.

Read this on my wife and I’s first vacation without the kiddo in years. We were just hanging out in a cafe in Montreal, pretending not to be parents. Truthfully, a ski lodge with kids sounded harrowing and it made our decision to fly solo just that much sweeter. Really enjoyed this Jill.

Hi Jill,

Enjoyed being along on your journey. I lack depth perception as well, because I only use my stronger eye for sight. I've convinced myself it's what stands between me and an excellent tennis game.

Men have a stake in bathroom inequity as well. I do not enjoy loitering outside the women's waiting for my wife.

Great post! I loved the mountain imagery and Joel's wisdom. You're right about the toilet problem. I'm always surprised that one of the strongest challenges to disability equality comes from other disabled people themselves :(

We rarely holiday overseas anymore. We used to love it, but now? The people. Too many inconsiderate, entitled, self-indulgent people. There are lots of lovely ones too, but somehow they don't ever balance out - like one drunk, middle-aged asshole counts for 25 really nice people....

Such a great post, Jill! So much fun, so much verve.

I also enjoyed Irkutsk while on the Trans-Siberian. There was something very special about the light.

Beautifully unfolded ... smiles, indignant solidarity on the question of ladies' loos (is that the correct apostrophe spot?) ... Nordic Noise and Nonsense ... this had it all. Nice to have you back in the in-box, Jill

So glad you got your break, yes from thinking, and were back on skis! Hilarity has ensued.
