Science Fiction Fantasy

As a follow-up to yesterdays science fact blog, today is a celebration of all things science fiction.  It's a shame it's the end of the week or I could've continued the theme tomorrow with a fantasy blog...  Maybe next week will be fiction genres week (if I can find 5 good subjects - fantasy, comedy, historical, romance, action-adventure perhaps?).

After the bank holiday on Monday I've been confused all week and Friday sneaked up on me.  I'm still not entirely sure it is Friday but House was on last night so yesterday must've been Thursday...    Anyway, we're having a new sofa delivered tomorrow to our first floor apartment.  Should be interesting...  We've ordered a modular sofa from a company that specialises in making furniture to go into apartments so hopefully it won't be too difficult to get all the pieces upstairs.  But we still have to get all the old furniture out of the room and get the new sofa in and assembled whist trying to keep a toddler out of the way.  Like I said, it's going to be interesting.  I may have epic tales of struggle and disaster for you on Monday!  Hope you all have a good weekend.  Now on with the blog.

  1. Excellent - some of my favourites here but also some new (to me) so I have some browsing to do today. I love the back to the Future Pegs, they are very "real", so much character in so few paint strokes.
