Dolmio, March 2008

When oh when will WiFi be free? Not for home use -- that'll take a while, even for the Google machine -- but in my locale of choice, the coffee shop. Sure, some are leading the way (step forward Woodbridge's very own Tea Hut and Browsers), with kudos to the megalithic McDonald's for showing the others how to do it. Seriously, come on, Caffe Nero. Sort yourself out, Starbucks. Get a grip, Costa. Here endeth the rant to make room for last month's Dolmio (Doings Of Last Month Innoparticular Order).

That is to say, an attempt to capture past(a) events before they slip... my... mind. March 2008 was spent:

  • catching up with the fab Gavin And Stacey: all six series 1 episodes over three nights, then each series 2 episode as it happens
  • schooling the boy in his 3 times table, handily up on the kitchen wall
  • being drawn in to Michael Chabon's brilliant Amazing Adventures Of Kavalier & Clay
  • playing ping-pong in Boyton village hall
  • taking the Kent & East Sussex Railway from Tenterden to Bodiam
  • introducing the kids to the first three Indiana Jones films in preparation for this summer's fourth
  • setting up the garden basketball hoop
  • collecting Dr Who DVDs from, ahem, The Sun
  • switching the Tuesday footy from the closed multicourt to the wide open spaces of Martlesham Heath

And that was March 2008.
