I don't know what to talk about, my mind is full of all kinds of things today. We cleaned out the fish tank, I got a new battery for the Subaru, delivered and installed free by the AA which was nice. Christy went to town, Asher went to Papawai for the night and Finn had a friend over. The friend came with his temporary caregiver, who happened to be a good friend. So we had a coffee and a chat over the Australian Open first day matches. She said I ought to write fiction for teenagers. I said what I'm writing now is probably awfully tedious to anyone but me so maybe that's a good idea. I dunno. Maybe I should try a new idea. And finish the final final draft of Safe. Because I still believe in that. And I haven't done any schoolwork yet. Maybe tomorrow...

And OMG I listened to Brisbane Radio this evening because Nick was on it as a fill-in deejay and it was incredibly cool to listen to him chatting away.

Australian Open has begun today - my favourite Grand Slam event. I shall be near the tv every chance I get for the next couple of weeks. It's at a good time for us in NZ. US Open timing is a disaster if you lead a normal life down here, and same for Wimbledon, although I can watch some of that late each evening. I don't like watching the French Open so much. I don't like clay as a viewing surface, although there is usually some good drama in that tournament.

So. I'm just rabbitting on while Finn is waiting to use the bathroom and is arguing with the cat about some spilt milk. He's telling her to come back and clean up her mess and stop giving him the silent treatment... dare I tell him the cat doesn't like milk?

How odd that we all see our events (e.g. Wimbledon) as taking place at exactly the right time of year...!! Hope you enjoy your Oz series!

Tell Finn adult cats shouldn't really have milk, except as an occasional treat if they like it, which a lot don't. Their digestion isn't designed to cope with it!

Finn knows our cat doesn't drink milk. Finn was just being Finn. And the cat was being equally weird, so I left them to it *g*

I wish someone had told our cats that! - every time we took the milk out of the fridge we used to be surrounded by menacing moggies!

I wish I had time to think about tennis, let alone watch it...
all I get to see is the boys playing tennis on the Wii!!!!

I like tennis on fast surfaces, I always reckoned the long drawn out rallies on the clay courts were a bit boring... but I've lost touch with who's who in the world of tennis these days - sigh!

If you're busy, you have to make a real conscious effort to follow sport. I can do the Aussie Open because it's always in the holidays here. I used to know all the English and Aussie League players before we had children but I wouldn't have a clue now. I can keep an eye on ManU and the soccer because it's a religion in this house but I don't get to watch whole games. Thank goodness we now get the 'sports highlights' channel!
