Dolmio, April 2008

Round for Sunday lunch at the Lionel Bart musical friends down the road. Given (a) they've got kids and (b) we've got kids, thought it might be vaguely diverting to knock up a wordsearch to complete between courses. Had to include, as a minimum, everyone's name (there's ten for starters), plus one or two words related to each person. Decided on a 16x16 grid to accommodate some of the larger entries. Trick is to place the longest ones first and work your way down in length. Becomes quite a challenge. But that was last month, much like last month's Dolmio (Doings Of Last Month Innoparticular Order).

That is to say, an attempt to capture past(a) events before they slip... my... mind. April 2008 was spent:

  • prep-ing maths test papers for forthcoming Middler's SATs
  • being mesmerised by Amplive's Rainydayz remixes of the mighty Radiohead's "In Rainbows" album
  • identifying the saints in the hugely charming Millions
  • welcoming the return of the firm family favourite Dr Who
  • reading Neil Gaiman's weirdly wonderful Stardust
  • urging Eldest to do any languages homework: hasta la pasta
  • overplaying Just A Song About Ping Pong by Operator Please

And that was April 2008.
