The same old story... relentless goodness?

It's just a sticking plaster )

And yet...
- Na'Quis's sports day: the weather was mostly good (I even got a little sunburnt), Na'Quis was proud of her achievements ("I can run really fast!"), and I'm proud of her for going and doing it, even though she'd missed preparing for sports day with her fellow pupils.
- The Marquis and I put up the garden table, and then I spent about two hours cleaning garden furniture and partly cleaning up the shed, until the dust got to me.
- I took Na'Quis with me to a singing lesson. She wants to have her own and I am going to start again. My singing teacher has a new singing room in her garden: it is fantastic. I want one. ;-)
- Just as the sun was setting it peeked out behind the cloud and made the apple blossom on our neighbours tree look the most glorious luminescent pink. It made me want to learn to paint, because on a photo I can never capture that kind of light.
- I can hear the sound of the rain on the patio. The plants will appreciate the water and I like the sound.

93/100 Clashing shades of blue and green

I have had another busy day. Started with a bit of writing chat via text with Viala (who had a writing snag that needed desnagging) on the bus to the hospital to have my foot x-rayed. It's not got any signs of stress-fractures, hooray! Then picked up my parcel (delivered yesterday while we were out) of Na'Quis's and my internet shopping from the other day. Work - sorted out a few things, sent of the emails I prepared yesterday, met with two reps from McGraw-Hill who talked about some resources that sound rather intriguing. Had a lovely coffee with Versatile (who helped with the Athena application), and who gave me advice about how to investigate changing schools for Na'Quis as and when we move to Brum. Versatile also made the 'mistake' of asking me about my (novel) writing and so I burbled at length and with great enthusiasm...

The photo is colour inspired. The three items of clothing which arrived for me in the parcel (and which I am very pleased with) are all in similar shades which I really like, but which don't go with each other. I liked the idea of recording this.

P.S. I can't stand the new look LiveJournal. Probably will get used to it out of necessity. Bah.

25/100 Stop at a café

Na'Quis has been doing a lot of growing lately, and so we ventured forth into town today to get some new shoes. When we do this, we usually follow it up with a visit to the café opposite the shoe shop. Na'Quis asked if she could have the mango drink. She was clearly enjoying it and the Marquis and I were enjoying watching her enjoy.

Friendslist

Hello folks, I am reducing my friendslist a little. If you have been 'defriended', this is purely because I haven't seen/read any posts from you in ages, don't usually exchange comments with you and don't think that we really have much to say to each other. If I'm wrong, and you do want to read my journal, please leave a comment and I'll put you straight back on the list!

Books on offer

Hi folks,

We have a few books that we are removing from our collection - to make some space! The titles are under the cut. If you are interested in any of them, please leave a comment.

The books )

I am not really 'selling' these - with the exception of the Tolkien Biography, which I'd be willing to negotiate a price for. Instead, I'd ask for you to pay postage, and any donation you'd be willing to add to that will go to [livejournal.com profile] na_quis's (my four months old daughter's) savings account.

Hooray!

I just managed to catch up on Doctor Who, which I'd missed for the last two weeks. Intriguing story.

For information of the flists

The Marquis and my internet connection at home appears to have suffered a fatal something or other and since we don't know when we'll be able to get back online, we thought we'd mention here our digitally deprived state.
If we don't 'see' you before then: Have a good yuletide!
