Soggy Saturday

More rain! Managed to get into town yesterday for some shopping before the next shower. I didn't find much, just some blank CD-R's that we had run out of. Archie had spent the night at his friend James' and came home feeling sick and slept most of the afternoon. It was James' birthday and he'd eaten too much weird rich food or something. Playing lots of video games that gave him a headache which didn't help. He's fine today though. He has an animation at the Horse Hospital in Bloomsbury, London, tonight but we can't get down to see it. It's part of the Flash Film Festival. He also has three films in the next Cornerhouse animation festival in October. His CV is looking better than mine now!
Today the rain just kept coming so kept us in to blog and mess around on the computer. I popped out briefly for some bread and get the Independent which had an obscure Italian film on DVD given away inside. "Francis, God's Jester" by Rossellini.
Hazel and Archie went out later to the shops when the rain stopped. Archie got a new book and some old Dandy's to read.
Just watched a very one-sided football match between England and Andorra, which I think is in the Pyrenees? Apparently the whole country's population could be accomodated by the stadium they were playing in. I don't really see the point of playing such poor opposition.

I was at a party last night and worried I'd miss the game. I saw the beginning and the first two goals. And the game was, by all accounts, pretty boring and one-sided.

Yeah, wet and miserable here too. We're supposed to be taking Bob and Marg to Paris to0morrow - 5am start - but both Bob and Jill are poorly and I don't feel too well. So maybe we'll cancel.

I could certainly do with some time at home.

Yes, it was pretty boring and I found myself idly weaving some old drinking straws into a model of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon towards the end.
Sorry to hear aboiut your poorly guests. I hope they are feeling better and you managed some sight- seeing somewhere.

Sight seeing? I've seen enough sites in the last couple of weeks to last me a fortnight.

michael said...

What sites would they be then?

Hindsites mainly.
