Between now and the middle of June, things around here are gonna get pretty interesting. Not in a spaceship crashing, 'Oh God, oh God,  were all gonna die!,' way, of course, but nevertheless, a little on the interesting, bordering on stressful side.

First off, tomorrow I have to go to the airport to pick up some elderly* relatives who are coming over from England for a visit.

They're only staying for a week, but a few days after they leave, Senior Management flies off for a business trip to England, followed by more business in Hong Kong, which leaves me in charge at home for at least a fortnight.

I'm telling myself it's a good thing. I'll be able to get a lot of much-needed writing done. If I can wrestle the remote control from the hands of my autistic daughters, I may even get to watch some of the cool stuff I've lined up on my Netflix streaming queue, not least of which is Mega Shark vs. Crocsaurus (those made for SyFy movies are hilarious).  

How about you?

What's in store for you over the next few weeks?

I have two weeks holidays coming up (I'm lucky, due to the conditions when I started at the Uni, I get five weeks leave a year... though NOT much sympathy when I point out it isn't that easy to fit it all in...)

PS - I think I wanna see that movie.

Hehehe, be careful what you wish for. Once you've seen one bad SyFy movie, you'll want to see them all :)

My mother was addicted to pulp SF and Dr Who. I'm immune, I am :)

Thanks, Jenn. If it's anything like as funny as Megashark vs. Giant Octopus, I know I will :)

Hon, get another tv. This is what we did with our kids and it saved a lot of hassle. You will never win the war of the remote and if you come close you will feel like a heel.

Relation visiting is a trifle stressful and so is the work trips overseas. You'll survive, but it will indeed be an interesting time for you. I hope you managed to get in some writing.
