Must be getting soft …


I recently decided that I needed a Bluetooth keyboard for my iPad. Never really liked typing on screen as I have more or less grown up with ‘proper’ physical keyboard. So I scoured eBay and found one that looked to be just what I wanted. Not the cheapest and not the most expensive either. It … Continue reading Must be getting soft …

Well I think this is interesting …


Youngest is doing his usual Saturday 'thing' and watching YouTube videos on my laptop. He does this every weekend, after he has had his wash/bath, he'll come down and sit at my laptop until his lunch is ready. I was going to use my older laptop to do some work on but I thought I … Continue reading Well I think this is interesting …

Over so soon …..


   That’s the weekend then !    I tried out the new mop today. It worked just as I expected. Mrs H has always doubted that any kind of mop would be any good in the kitchen. I think she has memories of when we used to mop the floors at work. There you washed … Continue reading Over so soon …..

A good start ….


   The borders in the living room came off a treat. It looks like the ones in the dining room will be the same. We/I think that I will have to decorate the living room  first, before I start on the dining room. The hardest part, I suppose, will be moving the large furniture. That … Continue reading A good start ….

Whiskey is all gone .. Shock .. Horror (but don’t tell the Dr)


   When I say that that the whiskey is all gone, I mean nearly all gone. Just a smidgen left, of which I am sampling now. If the medics have their way, it will be all gone. Question: how does making alcohol more expensive for me, stop the pissheads from buying the stuff in Europe, … Continue reading Whiskey is all gone .. Shock .. Horror (but don’t tell the Dr)

Weekend all gone


   A quiet day today. R*** had a lie-in until 07:30 which was nice. No jobs to do today, except making the dinner. I pegged out a few more strawberry plants. That will make about 8 new plants all together. I don’t really know how we will over winter them. I think, I’ll leave them … Continue reading Weekend all gone

….. just a little bit more.


   When I said that Office 2007 installation went well, I may have spoken too soon. I had problems with the Bluetooth, Outlook and my webcam. Now I suppose the Bluetooth and the webcam may be down to installing the RAM, but Outlook was a problem. First I had application errors linked to Visual C++, … Continue reading ….. just a little bit more.

   Today went as well as it should have. No problems with the handhelds over the weekend, which is a good thing. I thought we may had an issue with one of them,  but it seems to have either corrected itself, or more likely it was an user error. Everyone seemed to be in a … Continue reading …… continued

Busy day…..


   Well we got the new TV today. Looks quite good and the picture is great. We have had to move the screen around a little so it does not block out any more light, but it is quite watchable in its current position. We have been trying to get S****s surround sound to work. … Continue reading Busy day…..

And yet another day…….


It did not start well. The youngest lad up at 4:30am. He was in and out of our room for his ‘cuddles’ about every half hour. I reset the alarm clock for 7:00am, thinking I would be off at just after 7:40am. However, I had not banked on the frost. To make matters worse, the … Continue reading And yet another day…….
