say hello, wave goodbye

This week I've been having some technical difficulties. Within 24 hours, I managed to kill two computers - Gaynor's, then my own. I spent the first half of this week fixing them - happily, they're both working again now :-)

Then, for the last couple of days, I've been ill. Just a cold, but I've felt pretty poorly - today I slept until the afternoon.

Other news from the week (well, "photos with captions" rather than actual news...)

My landlord brought me some fruit, which I thought was very nice of him. And when I say "some" I mean "loads" - 8 oranges and 32 bananas !!

On Wednesday it was time to say goodbye to the hire car, and hello to the new Madza Familia, which is now minus the roof rack and ladders. I haven't named him yet. He's definitely a he, though.

I have roses in the garden. They're pretty.

Earlier tonight I discovered that my camera can see a whole lot better than I can - this is probably 5 miles away. The boat you can see on the right has been stuck there for years, and I believe there's a (maybe) interesting story about it... but I can't seem to find any reference to it anywhere - link, anyone?

That's about it for now.

You gotta like a landlord that'll bring you fruit :)

Hmmmmm, I'm thinking that your car looks like a "Bill" to me ... don't ask me why, it just calls out "Bill"

I love the photos! More please :)

May I compliment you on your fruit laying out abilities? Most excellent!
