activity report: still working on the pub, , and on my collection of friends' and neighbours' babies born in the same year as Alexander. I'm up to 10, current and pending. it's going to be a good first birthday.

being at home is surprisingly time-consuming. people keep inviting themselves here for coffee, and it only takes a few to make a peaceful week a bit too much. I've taken on a tiny freelance job, and will have to say no to a few visits to get it done. that, and organising a move to Hong Kong...

but seeing he was last married to a British writer and the new wife's a rather gorgeous model, the plot of Fury starts to look tres autobiographical.
I'd like to have him over for dinner. dunno about marrying him.

besides, at only 19 years younger, I'm too old for him...

too many quizzes
aargh. Blogger just won't come up.so I'll write this offline.
more serindipitous music discoveries: it's been bugging us that our Sopranos DVDs don't have music credits. the tunes are often surprisingly cruisy and lyrical. tonight we watched an ep. from the third series with a lovely Nils Lofgren song and thanks to the magic of Google, not only tracked it down, but found that HBO have put the song credits up online.

right now I am:

counting down the 45 minutes until Alexander wakes up from his nap.
sterilising his dummies etc
preparing dinner
agonising over how to manage any return to work, from home or at the office
about to do some stretches for my sore neck.
blogging.
looking up a CD my Dad wants for his birthday (Google found it: I typed in "Gosh Growban" and it took me here)
writing an Easter to-do list
blogging
emptying the dishwasher.
