There are a few reasons I’ve been quiet of late:
The football, naturally.
I have been ploughing my way through Labyrinth by Kate Mosse. At 700 pages, it isn’t exactly a short read and its plot is complex and it’s hard to keep up with who is who, plus it switches from events in 1209 and those in 2005 so you have to keep track of two story lines in your head at the same time. Nonetheless, I’m enjoying it.
My new game arrived from Amazon on Saturday – Rise and Fall: Civilizations at War. It’s an RTS game with a twist in that you can intervene in a battle as the hero in a first person sort of way. Great fun.
But the real reason is because Mrs P and our son have been away on a long weekend camping in the Lake District which allowed me to indulge myself with the above guilt-free and also meant I spent most of Sunday catching up with the chores I should have done on Saturday.
Mrs P arrives home some time this evening, so things will be back to normal, or what passes for normality in the Parrot household.
