Week 3 2017

This week’s bit of fun:


I have been decorating this weekend and am now sitting hear trying to get the paint off my hands before work tomorrow. I did play with an Amazon fire stick for a few minutes as well as fix some computer problems on Carole’s laptop.

Week 2 2017

This week’s bit of fun:


First week back to work after the Christmas / New Year break and we are very busy. Two weeks off and half our users have forgotten their password. I have started decorating at home so that should keep me out of trouble for a couple of weeks,
