Just a typical brief exchange captured on Twitter - there might have been more but I went off to get some fish & chips - It did however seem a fitting Birthday tribute to Shakespear

Having ignored the garden last year, save for a party or two, we picked up some very lovely garden furniture at Katherine House depot the other day (£30 for something we calculate would have costs us closer to £200) and since our little table and chairs set from Wilkos a few years ago wasn't really big enough to eat from we snapped it up.
We then went to Homebase to buy some teak oil and further then saw some lovely pots that would bring colour to the garden (and a parasol, and some plants, and some paint for the shed ... we shouldn't be allowed into Homebase)

I've had a lovely few days not really doing anything - Easter it's self Pete had off and we spent yesterday in the house, catching up on telly, making websites and raising a bottle or two to zombie Jesus - we haven't yet eaten the chocolate Buzz lightyears but the Tesco finest eggs made a very fine breakfast. I also made Sophie Dahl's yummy veggie cottage pie - her cookbook is in the post and I've already promised myself to be productive on my days off.
So, taking a leaf out of our Game's Tech Staff only Ning I'm going to write a to-do list on here and cross it off as I go:
Finish tidying my Study Finish tidying the Elvis Suite
- Become the 8th best assassin on No More Heroes
Make biscuits & cake using the tins and cutters I got for Christmas but haven't tried yet Dig out the antique sink in the garden, clean it off, move it to the front and plant flowers in it Weed the front while I'm at it
- Use my EA Personal Trainer every morning for an hour
- Do the bits and pieces I need to do for work (I know I'm holiday but so it goes)
Now the train strike's been averted I'm off to the State of Independence conference - since my other conferences this year have been thwarted I'm really looking forward to this one. It is an early start but Jess is travelling up with me so it should be fun!

I've just come beck from Tescos where judging by the sheer quantity of chocolate Buzz Lightyears in the Easter Egg aisle it's possible Toy Story 3 will have a very different message from the other 2 (Could Buzz Lightyear be the 2nd coming??) -
Apart from that It's been a busy time - getting all the documents ready to be submitted for validating new awards (including my new one Computer Gameplay Design & Production), Bobbie & I went to present something on FAST-E at the uni's Technology& Learning Unconference (Details are on my uni blog somewhere on the right -->).
