Wow, aren't I the lucky one!!!
My son, David, has come to stay for the weekend. He is a keen cyclist, in fact he's just recently completed in the Etape du Tour race, part of the Tour de France. He came 2 hours ahead of Chris Boardman (he of Olympic gold medal fame) but 2 hours behind James Cracknell. Anyway, I digress, he knew I had been wanting a new computer, and since both he and my son in law have Apple Macs, of course that's what I wanted and needed desperately. Anyway this morning he went on a long bike ride and around 12.00 I got a phone call from him asking if I'd pick him up in Holme Firth (about 20 mins from us). When I arrived, he said the reason he didn't want to complete the bike ride because he wanted to take me to the Apple Store in Meadowhall and would I like a new computer for my birthday/Christmas pressy combined. Well is the Pope a Catholic (hope I don't offend anyone), how could I refuse. So off we went and here's the result. I've spent all afternoon playing and am thoroughly enjoying myself, whilst David and his father are having a real needle match playing golf a la Tiger Woods on the Wii. We've managed to have a BBQ in between, as well as consuming 4 bottles of wine between us, and I caught a few minutes of the X Factor before being thrown off the TV. No space for it in my craft room, so on kitchen table for time being.
