|My wall hanging|
The weather has been grey all day and the village was eerily quiet when we got back - so I thought that it would be safe to drive up to the beach and walk the dogs - woooah was wrong - I have seen emptier car parks outside Tesco's! Lets just say that I turned around - there was just nowhere to park! The saving grace is that the schools go back on Monday so normal service can be resumed.
Home again, it was time to continue with the mystery Christmas presents - today went much more smoothly and all three are now half way done! I was interrupted, however, by the arrival of a new toy. Partly personal indulgence and partly research on behalf of my mother I ordered the new Kindle fire - the one selling at £50. The advantage to me is that it is small enough to slip into a handbook and use as an e-reader - rather than my ipad. However I am extremely impressed with the speed of the internet, the clarity of the video screen and the ease of setting up. For anyone thinking that something this cheap just can't be good enough - I can assure you that it is. You can even enlarge the text in the same way as you can with an ipad.
