You know the happenings of the past few days make you stop and think... well me anyway.
Japan - I can't begin to describe all that, how utterly awful and how it shows us that with all our technology etc. nature will have her own way. The nuclear thing is dreadful but sadly a consequence - build for a scale 8 earthquake and a 6m wave... not a 9 quake and a 7m wave. But all those people now freezing, no food, no heat etc. 21st century living wiped away in an instant.
Closer to home. My daughter has been nominated for captain of her swimming team - how cool. I'm not sure about the working away from home still - it is better than the stupid commute but I really miss being home and there is so much hassle in the organising of silly things when you are not about in the week - little domestic admin etc. it is a pain.
I found out that a guy who was working on the programme that I'm on committed suicide last year because of the stress of work. How so sad! It is just a flipping job.
As I've said previously this is teaching me a lot about what is important in the world for me.
