Mother is Always Right

Really I guess that title should say, Mother, Wife and Mother-in-Law are always right! They’ve been nagging at me for a while to go to the doctors for a general check-up as my family history doesn’t make great reading: High blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart attacks and cancer all feature highly in the medical...

Grrrrr….. My nice shiny 15″ 1.5Ghz Apple Powerbook has blown up… It is less than 2 years old, cost me close to £2,000 and has been treated very gently, but the logic board is fried and it looks as though a repair is going to cost as much as buying a new machine.. I’m not...

Maybe I’m going through a mid-life crisis, but when in Bristol last weekend I actually bought myself a pair of running shoes!! Hopefully they won’t be just for show either....

New Words

It may not be that exciting to some people but I was certainly impressed when Morgan came out with ‘ca’ on Saturday morning when he saw next doors cat walking in front of the window. It wasn’t a one off either and every cat he sees now is greeted with ‘ca’. I can’t help wondering...

Fish Tank Relocation

For my sins I have done quite a bit of work over the last 7 years for a local ‘celebrity’ who owns a large mansion just south of Aberystwyth. However, this source of employment has all but dried up now that he and his family have moved back to Germany. I was of course left...
