I don't usually comment on things that are in the news and maybe I'm wrong to do it now. However - is it just me or does anyone else find it gobsmacking that Madeleine's parents left their children alone in a hotel bedroom whilst they went out for dinner? As a parent it's not something I would have ever considered when Dan was small. I would feel guilty if I just nipped out of the house to fetch something in from the car once she was in bed. Obviously none of us know the full story as we weren't there, but it all feels a bit odd to me. I have been looking at Gerry's blog over the last few days and I find his writing quite strange in that it's all written in a very 'me, me, me' tone. Have a look at it and let me know what you think?
