My company had its Family Day, so I took the kids along and made notes for an article for the in-house magazine.
Next day I took my son along to a birthday party at an entertainments centre in a mall. This gave me plenty of time to sit in the cafe downstairs and write up the article longhand.
Later I wrote up an idea for a short story in flash (abridged) form, but alas missed the deadline for posting it by a few minutes.
Yesterday I finished off the article, got its approval, sent it to the editor and got word it'll form the text to a special supplement.
Also yesterday, for some reason a limerick about Othello popped into my head - hence the picture of the barrel, as you'll see if you read below:
An envious husband, Othello,
was quite an inventive young fellow.
My wife's fooled around,
thought the Moor, so he drowned
the poor girl in a barrel of Jell-O.
That's about it for the week. Time for a more academic exercise - a paper for my PhD.
