MWNN is back in Dublin, trying to recover something of the arrangements that Sis-in-Law managed to bugger up before swanning off to Italy for two weeks.

But enough moaning. There were things to celebrate that should have been mentioned and weren't.

*Summer has arrived at last and should be with us until the beginning of Wimbledon, when it will suddenly revert back to the stormy season. The sun is shining, the sound of the neighbour's mower is drowning out the birdsong, the smoke from next door's barbecue is making me wheeze, but - hey, not complaining, because I can use the heat as an excuse not to cook whle MWNN is away, and live on salad and canned tuna. That should see off the extra weight those comfort childhood sweets put on the other week.

* totkat was promoted and now dictates manages the team that is responsible for I know not what in interactive TV out at Television Centre. So when Sir Cliff starts singing Summer Holiday at Wimbledon when you press your red button this year, you know who to blame thank.

* I've had some nominations at several award sites, for which I know I have to thank myfeetshowit for at least one of them.

It's lovely out (I can even tell through my closed curtains!). Hope it stays nice for tomorrow and my research trip to the cotswolds.

Oooh - wotcha going to do? A Day Trip or longer? This for an upcoming episode?

I'm getting on with the next chapter, which may be ready for you to have a go at if you would, before MWNN returns on Saturday?

It's a day trip (a very long drive round really). As I've never been there, I thought it would be a good idea just to get a feel for the place (and occupy my mum too).

Send the chapter over. I'm going into hospital overnight Thursday for my sleep analysis, but it shouldn't get in the way.

Congratulations on your nominations!

And yay! for summer being there. It never gets too cold here, but I remember when the days started getting longer and I would be grateful that winter was leaving and that, finally, I'd have some warmth.

Hi! See the shiny, new toy! Thanks to boredom really and wanting down time from report writing. The weather here has been really nice, we've been down sketching boats at the harbour and out on the field 3 times, trip next Wednesday, that's just doomed it, hasn't it? Am impressed with he tuna and salad eating, have great plans in such directions but never seem to carry them through.
Sorry deleted and edited this because of glaring spelling error!

I wondered where your original comment had gone. I thought the demon-that-is hesadevil's-mailbox had chewed it up and spat it out again. The check spelling during preview box is your friend.

I love your icon and will look for it on future entries.

Welcome to the craziness that is my Live Journal life. I've friended you so that you won't disappear again.

Thank you so much for friending me, Ok to friend you back? Friending stops me disappearing? I only figured out the delete button tonight as in, what's that little cross... why's it only on my posts...oh... But I honestly thought you would still get 2 emails, sorry, 'cos then you could have laughed at the spelling even spell checker couldn't recognise. Am still getting to grips with this and most probably won't post much, but have posted once when I didn't think I would post anything so...
My daughter made the icon, I will tell her you commented on it, she will preen. I was trying to use a picture in a Word file not a jpg, she laughed lots.
