Did you do anything nice last weekend? No need to answer that question, firstly because I won’t be able to hear your reply, but also because I only asked so that I could tell you what I did — I brought my kids to a science fair.

I am currently luxuriating in the smug sense of self-satisfaction that comes from doing something educational with my youngest two children. I see myself in the mould of Edward James Olmos’ character in 1988 movie Stand And Deliver, the charismatic teacher helping kids from disadvantaged backgrounds — ie, our family home — to broaden their minds and horizons.
