GRETA GARBLE

My daughter has been singing the refrain all day to the Netherlands entry from the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. The song is about Dick—a friend of the singer's mother. As the result of a cerebral haemorrhage Dick is completely paralyzed. He can only blink his eyes and uses them to communicate with other people. It was called "Mijn ogen zeggen alles" (My eyes will tell), which Karin has been rendering as "mina ögon säger Alice" :)

Scored 4 books while in town shopping, and not one of them was on my book list (sorry, Mom!) They're all hugely thick and I'm pretty excited about them. Gaiman's American Gods is one I've been wondering about after enjoying Coraline and Stardust. Although they compare him to Steven King on the back cover, which isn't necessarily a good thing.

Picked up the kids at 2:30 and we've been having a quiet afternoon at home, with them playing and me dozing on the couch. Luxury! :) I've got plenty of things to do but no motivation at the moment. At least there were no gloating phone calls from my brother over the latest home-baked goodness from Simone. Yesterday it was fresh-out-of-the-oven banana bread with chocolate chips in.
