Interesting couple of days which, sadly have seen wifey taken to A+E to have a splint fitted
((in as much as she did a fair amount of gardening on Saturday morning which led to a bizarre instant RSI thing coming on. Very quickly her wrist swelled up to a fair old size and became unusable – which made it tricky to drive for a start – and on Sunday she stopped trying to tough it out and went for advice. Better now that she can’t move it and has a splinty type support)).
Some parts of the weekend have been lovely ((a picnic on the green with some lovely church friends and a meal the day before with some equally lovely work one +1 🙂 )) – some less so ((autism + inability to cope with anger = not chilling of atmosphere)). Anyhow just on here for a sec ((plus bracketed edit)), add a vid then off to pack kids up for school tomorrow (hey it’s ALL about the preperation…
Naaahhh not really but one of the littleys is off to the Lakes for a school week away tomorrow early so have to organise for that now.) ((That side of things all went off fine, phew)).
Anyhow, drew a picture that always comes to mind when I listen to the beginnings of the Joystiq podcast – one of my faves. Edited it while cooking dinner (how’s THAT for multi tasking gender stereotypists) and uploaded while … well, I deserved a bit of a break…
So: the Joystiq podcast 🙂 It’s three game geeks – well, sort of geeks – chatting about games and having a laugh while doing so and it’s fabulous fun. It also comes at a very specific time of the week for me being released on a friday night for me to download once I’ve finished the last youth group of the week… So I generally get home tired (very tired at the moment because I’m drafted onto football most weeks now 🙂 ) say thank you to the babysitters (without whom the youth group couldn’t run) and download the podcast. Then I tend to drift off while listening to it on my iPod before listening to it all over again the day after.
My exciting life, eh?
But it’s good, they are the soundtrack to my youth work in many ways and an excellent way to close the week. This pic is often the one that comes to mind as it begins to shut down (and I used to take aaaages to chill out after a youth group night – now I listen to Joystiq and fall asleep within half an hour or so). Thanks chaps 🙂
