Is anybody still there? I feel I should apologise for my absence from Blogland the last few weeks. It's not that nothing has been happening in my life, or that I've had nothing to say... I just haven't really had the urge to say it.
My biggest grip is that our browsing habits are officially being monitored at work and although I know it may be too late I really don't need everyone (or anyone!) in my office poking around on my blog. So I am abstaining during working hours.
Giving up coffee was easier!
So let's see, is there anything important I've neglected to tell you?
I got a new laptop - shiny new Fujitsu Siemens Amilo with all sorts of bells & whistles. It's lovely although I have some residual nagging guilt that it's a mild case of overkill for me. How many processors does one need, really, for blogging and email? Although the display & graphics are great so perhaps some more frequent photo editing will be accomplished.
(Let's pretend for now that I haven't only switched the thing on twice in the last two weeks, shall we?)
We also got a new TV. And no, we didn't win the lottery - the old one died a sudden death last week, a day before the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup so there was just no question of waiting. The credit card is looking a little withered but there is a sleek new flat-screen LCD screen decorating the corner of the lounge now. I think Hubby thinks all his Christmases have come at once.
Speaking of financial drains, I promised a while back that I would show you what our attic conversion was all about, so here you go, the photos as promised:
