Well I think I am home and dry as far as my posts are concerned. I got my new Dell laptop on Saturday and my son has kindly set it up for me. Now I am getting used to it and trying to apply Computer Sense to what ever I do - sometimes successfully, sometimes not so successfully. The trouble is that my computer knowledge is not always trustworthy. I really don't think I am a very logical thinker. But I shall persevere and you will all (hopefully) bear with me for a while.
Considering we are still in semi-lockdown I have really had quite a busy week-end. I had asked some builders to take up my upper patio of crazy paving and replace it with pebbles so that I can plant maybe five evergreen shrubs in it to make the area more interesting. They came to start the operation over the weekend. In addition I had a series of phone calls and yesterday afternoon friends S and T called with some, runner beans, a courgette and a cucumber. I have had them for my lunch today with a cottage pie - delicious. Then my friend and neighbour came round for a chat - so the week end soon passed.
Today has really been one of teething problems with my new laptop but I am gradually getting used to it and every step forward I make gives me a little more confidence. The weather is extremely humid - still, hazy sunshine and very warm. Thunderstorms are forecast throughout the week and it will be hit and miss whether we get one or not. I can't imagine it will be pleasant sleeping tonight as the weather is so very close.
One thing I shall have to do soon on my new laptop is to set the time correctly. As I write this the time is a quarter past seven in the evening but my laptop tells me it is a quarter past eleven. I shall retire to the sitting room now to give myself a break - and return, refreshed, tomorrow. Sleep well.
