what a world

What a world we live in eh? Some of the most powerful men meeting on one side of the UK, and terrorists attacking the other side. Strange that they are all men. Strange there there is more than 8 in the 'Group of Eight'. But then i remembered there was a woman there once, at least that i know of, good old Maggie Thatcher, throw her up and catch her...
As for the attacks, i'm amazed at all the emergency service guys, and how well they all dealed with it. Very professional.

This weekend the Scouts are off to Skib for their Summer Camp for a week. And for the 3rd year in a row i wont be there, the last 2 because i was in CH. I'm not going out there for the weekend coz i have a hot date planned in Kerry with everyone else. Their plan is go to surfing a lot, but i'm not into that sort of thing, i think i'll sit it out with a few of the others. Hopefully it will be good fun, but i really need a sleep in. I haven't had one in AGES!! It might be making me cranky...

This day 3 weeks i will be back in that strange little village in the middle of the Swiss mountains! YAY!
