Yesterday I went without internet and TV for another long, painful 24 hours. (When I have a child, I plan to keep them from TV for at least two years. . . that should be HILARIOUS.)
I didn’t get that babysitting job I wanted, but I don’t think it was because she suspected I was a criminal mastermind.*
I have a headache from reading so darn much about bushrangers and early Australian manners (two different books, both fascinating).
I also amused myself making a giant world map for my “Food of the World” party next month. It’s now labelled (colour coded for appetiser, main meal, dessert, and drinks) and blue-tacked to the underside of our glass dining table.
I used pencil lines of latitude and longitude to divide it into a 150% copy of our wall map. There are some errors, but it DOES look pretty. If you do the same thing, I recommend you use a rectangular map rather than the semicurved version.
Here’s what our table usually looks like:
*In fact I think I can say that for certain.
