Springing into inaction

What a fab day! Clear blue skies, bright sunshine, birds singing, Jack barking at the re-discovered neighbours in their gardens and the temperature nudging 20ºC. Yep, spring has arrived bang on cue.

The doors and the windows of the Parrot household have been thrown open to the fresh air and me and Mrs P have spent the last hour or two sitting outside reading our books.

In my case, that is the Rule of Four mentioned previously. I have to say it has taken some getting into as the first couple of hundred pages are mostly scene-setting with the odd hint at what is to come, and there’s only so much I want to learn about student life at Princeton.

But now that the characters are starting to unravel Hypnerotomachia Poliphili I’m making much better progress, so much so that it is proving a major distraction from other things I should be doing — like blogging.

Catch up with you later.

    And a typical "day after" with a cold wind and a scky so grey it looks like its been painted!

    Ah well. Guess the lawn will have to wait till the next dry spell. That'll be August then.

    The usual stuff — grey skies all day, then cleared for early evening.

    Bloody August!? We're planning a barbie for tomorrow.

    Take care.
