Hello my friends! I am afraid this will only be a short post. My laptop is in Oban, where it is undergoing repairs. Over the past couple of months it has had a couple of accidents. Once I walked away with forgetting I had it plugged into the mains. This resulted in the mains input being damaged. The other stupid thing I did was to walk away from it one day when I still had the headphones connected and on my head! Not only did this destroy the headphone input but it also gave me red, painful ears for an hour or so! When I get the laptop back I will, hopefully, resume regular blogging. In the meantime, I am writing this on Joanne's steam driven desktop computer.
Thanks to everyone who wrote and emailed regarding the ill health with which our household seems to be cursed at the moment. Joanne is feeling much better, thanks.
Over the next week I will post a few video or slideshow features. I wish I had gone down to the beach today and filmed something: the weather here today was wild and awful.
Just one other thing to mention: if you made a 'comment' recently you might have been surprised that it didn't immediately appear. This was because I received a 'spam' comment and decided to moderate the comments for a short while. The threat seems to have passed.
Thanks for bearing with me: normal service will be resumed soon!
