That’s the noise your computer makes when it fries, apparently, just in case you were wondering!!! At 1.53 pm today, my big work computer went *BANG!!!*, and what appeared to be orange sparks lit up the countryside near it. I was outside at the time, but a witness said it was spectacular. I unplugged everything, […]

… that I blogged yesterday, but the evidence is to the contrary!!!! I survived the first day back at work and handed out 12 classes worth of textbooks in one day! That’s not something lightly undertaken (some students had 17 textbooks!), let me tell you, but I received a round of applause from the staff […]

worn out …

It’s hard work, lying in an unmade bed all day!!! The girl’s bear was today’s PaD (photo-a-day) subject, and he very grudgingly agreed to pose for me. No one else in the house would play along, so I was reduced to tackling pets and special friends. Charli looked at me very suspiciously when I pointed my camera […]

over the hills and far away …

[Credits: quickpage and paper made by cherpea.] That’s where I think my holidays have gone, over the hill and far away. After just one day back at work, I can’t remember having holidays, in fact, I think someone must have pinched them!!! I sat through three hours of meetings, then headed off to the high […]

It’s kind of a family joke … we have a couple of Top Gear rabid fans at our house, and I’ve even been known to sit […]

I also had a wander through the shops this afternoon with my coffee mate, who I haven’t really seen at all […]
