Why is it that as the year winds down things get so busy?  A good kind of busy, though.  Also, with the nicer, cooler weather, getting things done is just so much more pleasant.  We stilll have a couple of weeks to go before the schools break for the holidays.  There are stilll drama rehearsals, scout meetings, piano lessons, netball practices and tournaments.  There is the Christmas pantomime. We've done one school fair last week; one coming up this Friday.  Grandparents are arriving for a visit.  Some Christmas gifts ordered and sent out; quite a number still to get.  


How is your end-of-the-year prep shaping up?

Lists.  Are you a list-maker?  I am.  I love lists. I do monthly to-do lists. I make lists of books that I want to read, of books that I think my children will like (and should check out). I make lists of projects that I'd like to tackle.  I have lists of various resources that I think might come in handy.  It gives me an odd sense of satisfaction whenever I can put a check against an item on my to-do lists.

Elevator Etiquette 101:  Let the people inside the elevator get out first before barging in.  May I add, too, that while waiting to get in the elevator, we should stand to the side, so that we are not in the way of the people walking out?  Common sense, common courtesy, no? 

*off my soapbox now*

What's your pet peeve?

There's this place here in Hong Kong that I'd heard was used in one of the scenes from the Transformers 4 movie. I haven't watched any of the Transformers movies so I can't tell you exactly which scene it was.  What intrigued me so much about this place, though, from photos that I'd seen, was how you can capture in one single shot how densely populated Hong Kong is.  These are apartments in an old Hong Kong estate, built somewhere in the 60's.   This place has that old Hong Kong feel to it the minute you stepped into the courtyard.
