Shut out the world...

Today I decided to put the world off for one more day (it's still holidays here). I sorted Lego instead. I started last night, and I've built a couple of things, and gotten the boys active in sorting and purging - it's amazing what else you find mixed up with the Lego, crayons, marbles, dust, peace keepers' guns, pencils, that sort of thing. So now it's mostly sorted again, and hopefully we'll make up a few sets and keep them on display for a few weeks. They do get dusty though. I'm making an Orient Express display in the hall *g* Indiana Jones sort of stuff.

Christy stayed the night at a friend's house, so it was quiet here. Unfortunately in the excitement of the rugby league final I forgot to go up to the bedroom and watch Charlotte's programme. I hope Andrea (her mum) taped it. Charlotte is a talented writer who has had some plays produced and has published some stuff too. She's amazing. So I didn't read to the boys either. We are up to the very last bit of Harry Potter. At last. Whee! I never heard the final word on whether he lives or dies... tonight!!! Christy declined to listen this time round. She's having a Cornelia Funke revival so that means we lugged Harry Potter and Inkheart up north, two heavy books!! I'm glad books are still cool though.

We might finally buy an Apple Mac tomorrow... I think I know what we need in terms of specifications and stuff. Just want to get the best price now. And of course, they have their latest ones out now. Hopefully better and cheaper! Apple computers? Not my cup of tea but they sure are clever. I may be a convert eventually.

For now, I am starting to think about all the work I have to do. I might start it soon... bleagh! Marking, planning, HOD stuff, tidying my office, mail, our local parish Confirmation in a fortnight... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh! I wish I could be like greenpizzazz6 and get it all done...
