mattygroves

Indeed. It's the 'plural' without the singular that gets me...
3:33 am
MollyL

Biology terms are weird like that. Stapes is another
3:34 am
mattygroves

Yep. Still looking for those pesky Es. I'm sure they'll deserve a fish slap when I find them

Indeed. I have 49 left and now slogging
5:29 am

Four years ago today I attended the ceremony officially making me a dual national - I got my British citizenship. On the fourth of July. The irony did not escape me.
