Well, Merry Christmas to you all. I’m exhausted. After sorting everything out last night and opening our usual one present each (it’s a family tradition that harks back to the time when my sister and I were young and my mother wanted to bribe us once to get us to bed…it’s become a family tradition […]

So contrary to what you see, I did write a nice long update on the weekend, how I fixed the car with Malc’s help and drove up to Aberystwyth to surprise Sean (which I did) and how we both had a relaxing weekend snuggling and watching buffy. Unfortunately, it got lost. WordPress so needs a […]

Orange seem to have a fault this morning which is causing me great joy as it deregisters my phone from the network, thus making my phone not work without any visible indication of this on the phone itself. Gee thanks Orange. Waiting for callback from Customer Services now to tell me what they think is […]
