Phew, been a long week, finally bumping onto the weekend.
Planning on a totally slobby weekend, good family time, painting a few more Vikings, typing up a bit more zombie book, playing a bit of guitar, etc....
Number One Son is settled back at Uni again and working hard. One of his latest modules is actually challenging him! Yeah, amazing! Before this he has worked hard but rarely felt that he is being taxed mentally. He won't let it beat him, of course...
We had a long discussion on Skype the other night - made better by plugging the laptop into some external speakers - about capital punishment. It was sparked by a news item about a guy who was recently executed by lethal injection and took longer to die than usual. Lots of views on this and I think we covered most of them, from "hang them all" to "it is not their fault, society is letting them down". Not sure where I stand, to be honest - I think my view varies from case to case, really!
Anyway, let's not get bogged down in all that! It is time I shut down this PC for the weekend and went off to do the things I mentioned above!
Oh, but before I go, I was just invited to go on a fieldtrip to the tiny isle of Lundy for a week.
Makes me think of Craggy Island. Apparently we will be staying in a bard (make that a BARN!). There is one pub and one shop and not much of a phone signal. Sounds like a blast to me!
