Today is the last day of my 'holiday' - but I've had a good rest and I'm feeling recharged enough to return to the fray.  I've also completed a read-through of DOAICS and made a few notes of the story as it is.  Next step is to add to the notes so that the story becomes what I want it to be.

I've decided to track down all of the diagrams for the Cat Gear in W3.  It wasn't something that I bothered much with when I was playing the game but I need a task and giving Geralt a matching suit of armour and weapons sounds like just the thing.  I can also dye it pink, if I so desire *evil grin*  There are lots of other colours out there, too.  Can't remember seeing red, though...

My new copy of 'Once Upon a World' arrived yesterday.  I haven't read it in over 30 years but flicking through it yesterday really took me back.  It's a retelling of the Bible for children and I think it's one of the reasons I tend to view the Bible as a whole - the flow of the story between so many different characters but all making their contribution.  The selection of stories is very narrow but it's only a short book and it is for children.  I shall be making use of it in my talk on 2 July.

Today, I'm going into town with the daughter to choose a new telly for the grandson's birthday.  It's a bit extravagant, perhaps, but he will get the use out of it.  And he's our only grandchild - it's our duty to spoil him!

Bye for now, DW!
 This week has been the second longest of my life.  The longest ever was one I spent selling advertising space in a diary for the fire brigade.  I managed to sell ONE space, to a cucumber grower in the south of England who I think was Italian.  To this day, I'm not sure he knew what he'd bought :D

Anyway, this week has felt like it was about a month long.  I don't know why - it wasn't particularly busy OR quiet, I'm not ill, I'm not stressed about anything...  It's just taken a ridiculous amount of effort to get from Monday to Friday.  But it is Friday, and I'm on leave ALL of next week.  I am going to slam into Blood and Wine and ignore things like housework and writing.

The fire that happened in London the other day is consuming a lot of news time and a lot of my thoughts.  It seems that the total destruction of the building was preventable, but safety laws either aren't strong enough or have been misapplied.  There were hundreds of people in the building.  So far, 17 people have been identified as having died but that number can only rise.  The fire brigade say they hope the number won't reach three figures; it seems a vain hope at this point.
