I know, I know. There you were on Friday, waiting for a review, and nothing happened. Disappointment is part of life. Deal with it.
But seriously, I had a nice follow-up post to Wednesday’s math problem all lined up, but it’s a long weekend over here, and the wife was released early from school, and there were DVDs and snuggling under blankets in the freezing weather and good red wine…you get the picture. I’m also taking a short break from reviews. I’m finally making progress with my academic reading with the result that I’m not reading much fiction at present and I want to spread out the reviews I have lined up a little so I don’t run out of them before my reading catches up.
Yesterday was more of the same and today’s no good either: My dear old mum is turning sixty this week and my sister and her husband have come up for the celebrations. The wife and I are on our way to me mum’s now for an early birthday dinner consisting of ostrich neck and oxtail stew and whatever my sister decided to whip up to complement that. (Have you ever eaten ostrich? It’s yummy. Almost indistinguishable from beef, except that it has almost no fat, thus the few pieces of oxtail in the stew – it runs the risk of being too dry without it.)
Also happening this week is me and the missus’s (man, that’s a lot of s’s) fifth wedding anniversary, but more on that later.
