little review

Poem for Wednesday

Collapse )

The kids had no school Tuesday so the teachers could do report cards, which made things only slightly more hectic than they would have been anyway. I took them to Circuit City to get Happy Feet because of course we had to get that the day it was released (in fairness, partly so younger son would watch it and not need to stay up all night on the plane to Heathrow watching it...now older son must be convinced not to stay up all night watching Casino Royale and we'll be doing well). We also had to stop at Build-a-Bear to get stuffed Mumble a new hat and shirt. And I bought underwear, having concluded that I should probably throw out the really icky underwear before traveling with it.

What percentage of British electrical outlets are the round two-prong as opposed to the rectangular three-prong? How do I know which kind of plug I need for what? We're taking the red-eye Wednesday night so I ought to be around till tomorrow afternoon, if anyone desperately needs to talk to me. (I know I was discussing with someone in Birmingham possibly hooking up when I was over there, and now I can't find the exchange of comments even though I was sure I had put it in memories...if that was you and you still want to see about maybe meeting up, perhaps at the Dudley Zoo, let me know!)

Poem for Thursday

Collapse )

I've posted this poem twice before: when I left for England in 2003 and 2005. So it's a tradition now. *g* (mamadracula, you may stop laughing at me any time!)

My day so far has consisted of laundries so perkypaduan doesn't arrive to dirty towels, plus packing and making sure various electronic equipment is well-protected. My mother has driven us to Dulles, and in a little while we are off!


Glastonbury Tor, which I was trying to draw for the drawing analysis meme. I hope to be there in a few days and this time we're getting to the Chalice Well before it closes!
