"We thought there was a crack in her French Horn, so it was tears all the way to the South Bank."
Please let the utterances from Highgate mums in this list be real. Abingdon might be a solidly middle-class town crawling with young families, but I doubt you'd hear anyone say anything like "I throw my arms to heaven and thank God for the iPad. Although the au
pair keeps using it to talk to her family in wherever they are."
And on a related note, here's a (NSFW) Mumsnet thread that you'd be unlikely to find any Highgate mums contributing to. The mind genuinely boggles.
