Too clever for my own good …


This is a little techy. I have been having a problem all week with the performance of my main laptop. Applications were slow to open and even slower to close. I scoured the internet for answers and did everything, bar re-installing Windows, that was suggested. But the problem remained, and it was getting worse. Some … Continue reading Too clever for my own good …

Weekly Photo Challenge – Local


Search for Bramham on the Internet and is will usually tell you that it is in North Yorkshire. Well it did the last time I ran a search. It is actually on the border of West and North Yorkshire. But it’s where we call home.                     … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge – Local

Life changer + 21 … aka … bloody hell that was quick!


I did not mention it, but at the end of the angiogram procedure, the consultant told me that my arteries were ok.

A ridiculous amount of rain this morning in Whitby. Made packing up the car a bit of a damp experience. The rain did not stop until we reached Pickering. Had a walk round, then onto a Garden Centre nearby. No purchases though. Lunch at the White Horse at Deighton. Then back home to await the … Continue reading Home again

The prodigal returns …


Well he came home for one evening. Mrs H all giddy at the thought of him being home for the night. He made the tea for us, and did quite well too. He should be okay making a tomato sauce now. Just needs to keep his concentration focused. Pleasant night at the Red Lion for … Continue reading The prodigal returns …

All done..sort of


Well the reports got done. I tried doing the ‘fiddly bits’, but I did not know what ‘She Who Must Be Obeyed’ actually wanted me to do. Juggling the spreadsheet about, using financial controls is not my kind of thing. So after consulting the boss, I left the job ‘unmolested’. Anyway, neither of the people … Continue reading All done..sort of
