A few shiny new things have been appearing here lately. My laptop died hence the blog silence for 2 weeks :-( I'd had it for 5 years and to be honest I've been nursing it along for the last year. I'd been backing up my files and photos so when it literally fell apart it wasn't a shock. I shopped around and eventually chose a new one similar to my old one with £100 off as the added bonus! I'm still getting used to it. I've discovered I'm not good with new technology, I just don't have the patience. Definitely a sign of getting old!
Another new thing is The Teenager's black belt in TKD. I think the smile says it all :-)
Work is hectic, in all honesty I'm not enjoying it at all. I'm hoping that will change. I'm working long hours in school and still doing a few more at home every night. Housework/gardening and decorating have all been abandoned. Although I did manage to defrost and thoroughly clean out my black fridge freezer.
I picked all the ripe tomatoes from the polytunnel.
And all the green ones!
I've been using up as much as I can from both freezers before stocking them back up again. I stewed some gooseberries with a couple of sad apples from the fruit bowl and turned them into crumble. Yum!
Life is trundling along nicely.
Oh, there will be one more shiny new thing arriving in the next few weeks. Yesterday I bought a new car! But that story deserves a post of it's own!! :-)
