end of term...

It's been a strange, low-tempo week at work; most probably because it's the height of the holiday season, and people haven't been available to answer the emails I've been sending in an attempt to get some useful information.

Still, it's given me a good chance to catch up with some of the paperwork that I've been needing to do, and make sure things are reasonably well tied-up before I came home today. I've not had two weeks off work in a long, long time - mostly I take a week at a time, but it seemed like a sensible idea this year, not least because there are a few things happening over the next couple of weeks, and there's a Bank Holiday a week on Monday.

The holiday season will certainly start with plenty to do - we're off to Pete and Lisa's tomorrow, and down to the South Coast on Sunday for a visit to my Mother's. The children are very much looking forward to getting out and about - I am, too!

There's not a great deal of change on the house restoration front - our claim handler's on leave, too! - so I'm guessing much of the fortnight will be spent with the house in its current state, so we'll be aiming for day trips to various places if we can.

Only a couple of links in this blog, I'm afraid - the first is yet another fine offering from (acquisition by?) Google - it's called Sketch-Up and it's such an easy-to-use tool for 3D design. I daresay I'll be using it for the minor redesign I'm planning for the studio once all the parts arrive for it - I'm keen on going 'digital' which may mean I need to bring the PC closer to the studio, since firewire (the standard interface for digital audio and control signals) will only go 4.5m. That will have implications because traditionally computers are quite loud... which may mean I need to upgrade the case to a silent one. All that is to come, though; I've certainly got some saving up to do!

Game of the week:

  • www.scrabulous.com : it's Scrabble on the internet! I'm already playing a couple of games with my Facebook friends, and I think it might get quite addictive!

Something of a rambling entry, I'm afraid - hopefully I'll have more to say (and maybe some pictorial evidence of life!) in the next few days...
