Friday's come around again - this one marks the day my boys break up for Easter and don't go back until April 18th. Son1 is on a WWI trip to Ypres, Youngest off sick with painful legs caused by Vitamin D deficiency, so their holidays have already started. My task - get Youngest out of the Technolair and into the sunshine, which is easier said than done.
While I'm doing that, have a look at these stories and blogs I found (or wrote myself) in the past week. Lots of good stuff. If I missed your great blog post or news story, leave it in the comments and I can add you to my RSS feeds.
