Yep as my daughter in law would say "every day is a school day" she is a teacher! I was reading a blog post that I had stumbled across, you know how it is a moment of internet boredom and you are just one click away from a whole new discovery. Well I discovered that I am a Paralian. I read the first paragraph and found a word that I didn't know the meaning of so I summoned google my search engine of choice and discovered that the word Paralian and its meaning is SOMEONE WHO LIVES BY THE SEA. So not only me then? nope all of the residents of Thanet but I am chuffed that because I live here I have a name other than Don or the other one that has been used in the past OI YOU!
