All quiet in SE7

Things have been pretty quiet this week. I haven't come across much news (interesting or otherwise). I haven't done much except go to the office a couple of days and work from home the rest... it really has been very quiet.

I've discovered a new hobby in my leisure time. Genealogy. I'm trying to put together my family tree. When I told my grandmother she said "Oh, you should ask your Uncle, I think he's done quite a lot on that". That would take away all the fun though... wouldn't it. The fun is in the detective work. Sadly it could be an expensive hobby. Quite a lot of answers would only be gained from a birth certificate for a few key ancestors. Birth certificates are £7 a pop. So far I'm back to my great-great-grandfather on my mother's side, but only because my gran told me all the names I was looking for!
