Randomly lovely

It's been a somewhat untypical day for me - a rather random day in many ways, like the Serbian Bellflower (I'm told) that has found a cranny in my wall to sprout in.

This last included a zoom with my #2 son who was showing us the incredible design work his company's being doing with a school in Kuala Lumpur - and no, he's not an architect, he's an educator who works with architects as well as teachers to improve, in this case, the environment where education happens. 

The evening was the most bizarre, and wildly enjoyable, in a hectic sort of way. Our church has a reputation for its Quiz Nights, which are usually meals with a quiz (in teams) as the after-dinner amusement. People from other churches and none come along for the fun, and it's a good fund-raiser.

But it's amazing how a group of 6 septuagenarians draw a complete blank with the music of the 80s ...
