Listening - to The Diary of A Young Girl by Anne Frank on Radio National. It's more affecting than simply reading the book, perhaps because the voice of the reader echoes and amplifies the voice of the author.

Reading -.just finished The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Which really. Bugged me. With its short. Staccato. Sentences. Nice conceit though, of Death being haunted by humans.

Creating - helping the girls make this for a friend.

Wondering - how long it would take for untended vegetation to take over a city.

Researching - trying to hunt down a well written narrative history of the 20th century for Lucy, who doesn't want to wait until she's in Yr 11 to delve deeper.

Hoping -  to regain some enthusiasm for cooking. Or at least a tolerance for cooking.

A thought - My second favourite household chore is ironing.  My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint.  ~Erma Bombeck
