Home again

Well here we are back home, I have lots of washing to do as usual... We have a new bath in our bathroom and quite a few tiles.. no handbasin yet though...

Today I grouted a load of tiles and led a bible study at Alison's house. I also spent some time updating the church website. Tonight I've been typing up some of the story I've been writing during our travels - there is a heap more to type, and my laptop is dying... all my own fault, I should have been more careful with that cup of coffee!! The integral mouse doesn't work any more, nor does the keyboard, so I'm managing with a USB mouse and an on screen keyboard! - this is neither fast nor efficient! But at least it still works...all backed up though... not convinced it will carry on working much longer - sigh!!

There are some exciting possibilities on the horizon at the moment, if they become more than possibilities I'll let you know... Meanwhile tomorrow I can look forward to an Asda order, more
grouting, lunch with Chris and a working tea at Amy's place to get it ready for her return to the UK, though sadly I am going to miss out on the joy of washing Little Fishes toys... perhaps I'll cook some new playdough as a consolation!

No pictures today:( Though I've noticed that the wood is starting to turn blue with bluebells, my irises are blooming and my darker pink magnolia is in flower, so maybe I'll take some pic's tomorrow...

I'm just catching up! I'm home - just got in before - and so are you. And it sounds like you're back into everything again.

Coffee on a laptop sounds like a disaster to me, my laptop is sometimes my most precious thing in the world *g*

I think it might end up being a rather costly mishap... and an on-screen keyboard is enough to drive you wild!

More coffee spilt on me than the laptop - and I had scald marks to prove it... but my skin is almost healed now, the laptop is not!

Oh that's awful that you were scalded. Ouch!

Maybe the laptop will dry out... an on screen keyboard sounds like the stuff of nightmares!

Maybe the laptop will dry out... I'm frankly not hopeful, the accident happened before we set off to Germany!
Oh that's awful that you were scalded. OuchTotally my own fault... really silly! - my hand just slipped!
on screen keyboard sounds like the stuff of nightmares! just very slow compared with typing - yes even my typing speed! - oh well... consequences!

I should take note, I almost always have a coffee near my laptop. I try to be really careful but...

I do hope you personally are okay though. We can buy more laptops but not more Vivs *g*

I always try to be careful!!!

I'm just fine, though I did end up with some interestingly shaped scald marks in embarrassing places, luckily not very visible. Viv's are so much more durable than laptops!*g*

*pats your poor laptop and sends best wishes for a complete recovery or a painless death*

Our Spanish bluebells are almost out but since the dog died I don't walk in the woods as often - I must go and see if they're ready to photograph before we go away - though Colin assures me that you are 'ahead' of us, being nearer the west coast and slightly warmer - we're in the Peak District climate-wise.

Sadly I think death is more likely than recovery, but you can always hope!!

Our bluebells are definitely ready to be photographed, I just need to find the time to do it!
