busyness, books and power cuts

Sorry - short and boring blog to say that due to power cuts and general busyness there has been no blogging for a few days. All is well!

Successful Music Makers session this morning. Mr B's busy submitting papers. I managed to get to the pool on my own for the first time this afternoon, with the Mancub napping and prior to picking up Kitty and friend from school. Nice to actually swim for a change instead of simply fielding leaping children.

Just finished extremely good though somewhat depressing book called "The Shadow of th Sun - my african life" by Ryszard Kapuscinski. I'm reading quite a few works on Africa at the moment. For light relief we're also watching series one of "Lark Rise to Candleford". On the one hand it is wonderful escapism to follow the mysteries and intrigues of olde English countryfolk. On the other hand the issues - grinding poverty, family break ups, abandoned children, rich-poor divide, injustices, arbitrary and often cruel laws - all seem very similar to life here at times.

Anyway, must make the most of having power, and hence internet, this evening to do various fact-finding missions and internet shopping! Poor Grannie and Grandad may be receiving a few packages to courier out to us at Easter...
