Sky was brilliant blue today with just one clear plane vapour trail across it. It’s like art innit?
Daughter & I went to see the latest Hunger Games movie (basically just a filler until the big finale movie), and then went to Chiquitos for a meal.
I used to keep fish when I was a kid, but recent attempts with my daughter haven’t been successful. I thought I’d give it another try, so bought this Biorb 60L tank today. I set it up in my study and will leave it for a week before adding some fish.
I have picked up a cold, probably as a result of long haul flights. Luckily I was working at home today, so took it easy, and drank LOTS of tea. At one point I couldn’t find Pip, and she was taking it easy on my bed, snuggled into the sofa, like she was the one with a cold.
Ice hockey, drumming & horse riding. You can keep your sugar and spice.
My old iomega external 500g hard drive and the new Mac external 1T external drive. The former whirs like De Havilland starting up, and the other just plugs in smoothly.
I bought this selection of Balinese coffee when I was at the airport. Choosing one today, I felt rather like a drug dealer: do I want the Bali gold, or the more mellow Bali sunrise?
Landed at Heathrow at 5am, drove back, had a quiet day and then to ice hockey this evening. Bali is very nice, but it doesn’t have ice hockey. We played the Edinburgh Capitals, who last year we beat 7-2. It won’t be like that this year, I confidently predicted, they’re much improved. Well, I hadn’t counted on how much we had improved, and we ran out 10-0 victors. The Devils retired the no10 jersey tonight before the game, so it was all quite bizarre. At the end the Devils were trying [i]not[/i] to score to keep at it at 10, as that would make a good story.
Rory McGreal, María Soledad Ramírez Montoya, me & Wayne Mackintosh – the four ICDE chairs in OER (Fred Mulder is the 5th)
Last night picked up a bout of food poisoning and spent the night being ill (I felt sorry for whoever was in the adjacent hotel room). Luckily just one of those short term things, and this morning I was fine, but felt completely washed out. The last session of the conference ended at lunch, so I eschewed the tour that was on offer, and relaxed by the pool and had a short walk on the beach.
Homeward bound tomorrow.
