    I assume that in Belle's world, being able to take your children to have a locally sourced meat patti in a brioche bun with a side of twice cooked hand cut chips at £20 a go is morally superior to spending time with your children on holiday but only being able to afford a happy meal.

    Why would you think that on contemplating such a benevolent visage?

    It's like being Irish: everyone claims ancestry.

    My great-great grandfather came over from Dublin, according to a census - forget which one. 1881, I think. He lived in Warrington.

    I have some Irish blood coursing through me!

    This struck a chord with me. I can testify how awful it is for a child to start school later in the year than the rest of the class. This happened to me several times as a child -- not for holiday reasons or anything trivial like that but due to family movement. I would almost go as far as to say that taking your child out of lessons during the beginning of the year was akin to child neglect.

    You assume wrong.
    You have no idea about my world, but as usual take any opportunity to have a little pop at me.
    I hope you feel better for that.

    If I assumed wrongly,you still have not really explained why you think a trip to McDonald's with one's children could not possibly count as quality time. If your comment doesn't come from snobbery,maybe you could clarify what you meant?

    You are labelling people as not being the sort of people who spend quality time with their children on the grounds that they go to McDonald's. Or have I misunderstood?

    Can you explain what you mean by this?

    Argh, I got it wrong. I thought of Jaffa cake (sponge side) for some reason. It made me laugh, though.
