The things I'm enjoying doing instead of the things I should be doing.

It's time to make the Christmas Pudding, and get presents, and clean up the house, and see friends, and visit the family......instead I'm sitting permanently at my desk with origami paper, pens, stanley knives and gluesticks unable to move away to do the jobs that are pressing.

Sparrow village

Yesterday evening I went for a walk down Brunswick st. and stopped in at the Brunswick st. Bookstore for a browse before getting pizza and beer for dinner. When I got home Phil asked if I had seen any good books and I told him about the 'Book of birds of Melbourne' and how I wished I had bought it. "Birds of Melbourne?!" he scoffed, "What? You want a book about pigeons and sea gulls and those bloody yellow legged Minah things?" and I added meekly, "and sparrows....."
