A Pause oh so Brief.....


....in the cleaning, laundry, packing and preparing for visitors...

The house is clean, the clothes are laundered, the freezer is full of food (not, I hasten to add in packages labelled with the correct day!), my suitcase is all but packed, my reading material has been printed off, my laptop and briefcase are by the door. Aginoth's portable DVD player is in my car all ready.

What am I taking for Me-Time....
well, there won't be a lot of Me-Time, apparently.......but I am taking:

Lifeless - Mark Billingham's new book. I like him. Standup comedian turned novellist!

Finding Neverland DVD - sorry........but a week without Johnny - oh no!

Crash DVD - bought it on the strength of the reviews and haven't watched it yet. That is earmarked for tonight.

My Cousin Vinny DVD - a classic. Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei are absolutely fabulous in this!

And about a kazillion CDs.......

Don't be strangers, guys. I'm gonna try and find an internet cafe if I get time around my homework [looks worried] but I can't guarantee it. I am leaving my blog in the tender care of cyberkitten in case of any problems.

Please continue to leave comments and I will read them all on my return Friday night. Just time to kiss the cats and pet the MB (is that the right way around??) and do my laundry, then I'm away again next Sunday for the week too! :-(

It's funny but I didn't realy like My Cousin Vinny when it first came out but I've watched it a few times since and it just keeps getting better. Pesci was really funny.

Look after yourself. I am sure that you will be fine. It must sound very daunting. If you feel out of place then remember Tom Cruise dancing...the man never moved his feet!
