As a new week begins, a new edition of ‘Something to read when you’re bored’ arrives on this blog. It seems like it is meant to be, doesn’t it?

Well, it is! This edition has been lovingly put together to give you the best start to the week. It is loaded with… er… stuff… and… er…

…OK, so I slung something together as usual.

It’s still worth a read though.



Great news if a.) you live in the UK, b.) you are an Amazon Prime Video subscriber AND c.) you are currently home schooling. Amazon Prime Video has added four seasons of classic children’s show, How 2 to its streaming service.

The educational show from the 1990s is kind of like a science lesson, without the boring bits, and offers the answers to many of life’s most pressing questions.

This could be something to put the kids in front of while you take a break…. for three hours.
