I was doing SO well with the 'posting more often', thing, too. Sorry.

We've had flu.

And B's been away and miserable on a tour with some passive-aggressive people. He's back now for thirty-six hours and then away again for the rest of the week on the same tour.

And it's been raining. And raining. And raining. I am considering finding some plans for an Ark online and seeing if I can get a team together.

And then, last night, my laptop died. I think it's the graphics card - I can't get it working on an external monitor, anyway. And I don't feel up to wrestling with Dell customer support in person; so I am going to take it to a chap who mends things down in Williton tomorrow, to see if he can sort it. If not, I am looking at a new machine and deeply regretting the £70 I spent last month on new RAM.

Despite all of this, though - and being knackered in the way that flu somehow steals all your bones from inside your body without you really noticing, I am doing okay. I am reasonably cheerful, I am keeping us all fed and clean; and I am, mostly, looking after my own livestock.

If the rain stops for a few days this week I might even plant the ten kilos of garlic that are sitting down at Ma's waiting to go in the ground.

For today, that is all. Tea and cake, anyone?


  1. if it stops raining? oh please let it!!

  2. I'll take your tea and cake, and raise you whisky and chocolate. :)

    Thanks for your kind words chez moi; really appreciated, and much-needed. Will drop you an email to catch up.
