Eric's party was a big hit. All the kids were absorbed in making elaborate Lego creations. There was a separate room with food and wine for the parents. They loved this. (Some of them loved it a little too much.)

I woke up with a crusty swollen eye. So I went to a local drugstore that has a doctor present. They gave me some eye drops.

I started reading a book by Ken Bruen, called The Guards. Irish crime fiction, recommended by a friend. Not my usual genre, but I like it. Sometimes it's fun to step outside your habits.

have we ever talked about Joyce? Irish writers...just re-read Portrait - got more out of it this time but still didn't love it...lots of beautiful writing but doesn't hold together...now trying to plough through Finnegans Wake

Dubliners is by far the most
