I may be mad on occasions but I didn't think I was that bad Yes I did go to a Sunday market and ended up going to bed earlier then expected as Junior had finished school holidays and had to go back to school today - woo hoo! He had been doing the "I'm feeling slightly bored" cabin fever syndrome as he ended up with croup (hasn't quite out-grown it yet) during the holidays so his friends came to visit instead, most days. More on RL adventures when I get a chance to do so hehe!

Thank ye, thank ye and the leafy glade would be great, except it needs to be weeded so are you willing to help?

Junior says Grade 5 would be great if he didn't have homework to do

Like homework? Homework isn't there to be liked! It's training for coping with the boring things his future boss will have him doing. Tell him to set that to music and sing it!

I am thinking of a thin king (and a svelte Sandi) and of the wonderful ways that words weave their wayward warp and deft weft sinking into sibilant sentences with never a waup or whimper.
