game for a distraction from work (and travel!)

Wow..another busy busy week at work, covering such delights as clocks, wires and desks (well, OK, timecode distribution, ISDN codecs* and digital mixers) - I'm not sure how I managed to fit it all in!

Still, it's all being put on hold because I'm flying out to Germany for an advanced course tonight, which will be my first trip abroad since the increase in security. I think I'm going to put a small bag in the hold and take a few pocket gadgets on board with me. Because I'm only away for two nights, my baggage isn't going to be too substantial.. in fact I'm trying to pack quite light... we'll see how that turns out in a couple of hours time!

It's a little annoying that check-in opens two hours before the flight... were it not for the expectation of some miserable queing (hmm.. better charge up my MP3 player!) I would come back home for a while and then walk back just before the flight leaves. Having missed a weekend with the children, it wouldn't be too much of a disaster if I didn't make it to Germany, but it wouldn't be so useful for work...

Not much else to report, really.. save to say that Christopher's started junior school now (exciting, yet we're a little apprehensive, since the class he's in seems a little boisterous) and Lenni's back to pre-school. It's terribly quiet here of a morning now... plenty of chance to avoid housework!

Things that children (and, er, I) learn from TV:

A bath in tomato juice gets rid of skunk smells (from "Stanley")
Oak trees only start growing acorns properly when they're about 50 years old (from the almost-as-terrifying-as-the-Wiggles Doodlebops)

Right.. better get myself packed and ready to jet off on my international lifestyle etc...

Links of the day: (more of those game things I wish I had time to do...)

(*thanks for the informal training session, Ed!)
