The Napier Gunman. No doubt there will be a lot of what ifs and maybe's over the next few weeks. the discussion about arming police will continue. The worrying thing about that is having a Tory government. Shoot first. That way there are limited questions after.
On a different tack, my niece and I have been having fun with photos. The idea is that each fortnight we have an exchange of "pix" on a certain subject. Last fortnights was circles. I submitted this photo.
I haven't heard back. I spoke to my brother. My olde rbrother. His daughter (my niece is just 15) and he told me she was banned from the PC.
Turns out she has been wagging school. She was also babysitting and left her charges home alone, they were 4 and 2 years of age, whilst she went to comfort a friend "only a few streest away".
Where is her brain at? She is NOT from a disadvantaged family. She has 2 parents at home who love her and care for her. yet, she wags school. She sleeps around. She is rude to everyone. She has no "bad" history, no secret hurt.
What do we do? I have tried to "help" by getting into the phtotragpys thing, it is something that we both enjoy. Yet, when she visited at Xmas she took to smoking (ordinary)ciagrettes and drinking, when she thought we weren't watching.
I don't understand what this is. I am terrified my own scowly teen will head off down this track, but if she does I woould at least like to have an idea why!
