Anyone in England with Virgin broadband?

Then I feel very sorry for you. I heard three instances of their famous disconnection issues and after spending a few days with my sister and family, I was ready to chuck their computer out the window!

Been back a few days now but haven’t got into my stride yet, as I arrived late Wednesday night and then Etina was off at the Gothenburg book fair all day Thursday and most of Friday.

We then got an offer from a colleague of Etina, which was a free night in a Stockholm hotel. We packed Saturday monrning and set off to the capital. maddoc_deniz was in his element and kept saying Mama and Papa all the time, as it was the first couple of days in over a week he had us together. He has photos too over at his journal, check them out.

I managed my first night of unbroken sleep in two weeks last night, I went from eleven to six thirty and it feelt glorious – I even feel like I’m getting back on track.

Getting ready for the launch of Voices on Saturday over in Oz and even though I won’t be there I’m still getting involved in the preparation. The schedule looks fun and I really wish I was able to attend this one:

Conflux 5

Etina started her maternity leave this morn and had long lie-in (she just got up). She is relaxing in style with last night’s episode of Desperate Housewives (oh, the horror).

I need to get some major work tidy up done as I start my initial paternity leave in a couple of weeks too and I want to be as ready for that as I can.

Hope you’re all having fun on this Monday morn.
