I was going to title this post 'aah-mer' or 'aah-murr' or 'ah-mer' in honour of the phrase one employed to express surprise or shock at another's misdeed when I was at Abbey Infants in Darlington back in 1985. However, Google don't seem to have any of these spellings listed, so I now suspect that it might have been a fragment of my imagination.

Anyway, there's a lot of talk about the over-hasty 'adultification' of children these days. I was beginning to suspect that the phenomenon of the preternaturally pious child was a thing of the past, until I read this excellent story...

Seriously, that could only happen in Yorkshire.
