I’m playing on Empire Avenue.

{EAV_BLOG_VER:420c6542c2a9df24} That’s a verification code so I can link my blog to my profile. Apparently when I do that, I’ll get something out of it. I’m not really sure what it’s all about though. I came across it as the next Klout – I’m not really sold on Klout, given how it can be gamed, […]

Meetup in the (Hoxton) Powder room.

There’s a competition over at In the Powder Room to win a Cybermummy ticket and accommodation. I already have sponsorship, but I’ve friends that don’t, so I thought I’d take a quick go at it. There’s one question. Who would you most like to meet up with in the Hoxton Powder Room, and why? Now, […]

A nintendo wii, a media centre and a parenting fail.

I know it’s hard to believe, but until very recently the only games console we had in this house was Big’s handheld, a nintendo dslite, bought for her by a whole bunch of friends for her birthday. Then last week we gave Small a dsi for his birthday, mainly so that he would have it […]

Silent Sunday 29 May 2011

Just waiting.

Waiting to check out of a room, waiting to go for a shower, waiting for a bus, queuing to check in, queuing for security, waiting for a gate, waiting, waiting, waiting. Retresado. Delayed. Still waiting. I’d like to be home now.

You’d be right to expect this will be a book full of emotion […]

Waiting to begin

In a limbo tonight, waiting for endings and beginnings. Ending of this break from reality and normality, beginning of another hectic time with things to do, places to be, experiences to live through. Lots on in June, and time for my next 30 day plan I think. Firmer goals this time, as the first run […]

No world outside this real one.

Odd sensation being cut off from my imaginary friends. Even if it is at least partially self imposed. It’s not that I don’t like spending time with my family, I do, but it’s also that I miss those moments when, even virtually, I can step outside my life and lean across into someone else’s. Because […]

Experiencing life

Books read, 2 1/2. Meals eaten, lots. Alcohol imbibed, more than usual, but not as much as expected. Money spent, don’t ask. Time with children, about normal. Time online, negligible. Conversations with real people, rather more than usual. Conversations about breastfeeding, android phones, blogging surprisingly prevalent. So there you go.
