Pigeon post

Dot writes: we STILL have no internet connection, so once more here is a hurried and telegrammatic post smuggled out from my office when I should be doing something else (but I have to go and get Hugh in ten minutes anyway). The weather is suddenly lovely. The house is basically straight now, or as straight as a wee house can be when inhabited by two rather messy adults, one stupendously anarchic toddler, and lots and lots of stuff. Nobody in the family has a cold, sore throat, rash, boil or other ailment beyond slight snuffliness. I have actually managed to get to the library today and it was marvellous, except for the part where I got rather too warm and almost fell asleep. (But I prudently went and did photocopying until I woke up again.) We like being able to take Hugh to the childminder’s on foot and not use our car; Ken cycled into UCD and has been working on a publication (go Ken!). And Hugh has some most attractive new jumpers that I bought for him yesterday, and which he doesn’t need to wear now it has warmed up so much, plus new shoes acquired at the weekend (size 6G).

Happy happy!

    We’ve been missing you! And this despite various various ‘phone calls to arrange Sir Hugh Scampi’s Mountaining Expedition.

    Photo-copying wakes you up?
    An ice cube down the back of my neck is the only thing that works on days like these.

  3. I used to sleep through lectures over at the O’Reilly institute on a regular basis. No windows at all and a lecturer from Queens with a lovely soporific voice droning on about Databases.

    I think it worked though as when it came to the exam I just went into a stupor and came out with a pretty high grade 😉
