I’m sure I’ve said this before, but Windows is officially a pile of pooh. My attempts to further my networking have come up against Gates-induced trauma at almost every stage.

Still, never mind – I took my luvvly Mum for lunch at our favourite restaurant today, and in the course of our lunchificating we got to chatting to a nice chap on his own at the next table: He has high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes – like me – and he recently lost his spouse to cancer – like my Mum did – so we had plenty in common.

Then on the way home we stopped at Halfords, so I could buy some antifreeze and windscreen wash fluid, and while I was there, you’ll never guess what I saw. People were buying Ready-diluted windscreen wash. That’s right – they were paying good money for a plastic bottle containing eighty percent tap water! Now I’d be the first to admit to the occasional lazy tendency, but even I’m not too lazy to get water from the tap to fill up my windscreen washer bottle. They also sell ready-mixed antifreeze and water.

Then it was home to continue the exciting struggle to make the desktop and laptop file share with each other. I promise I’ll blog about something more interesting (like geocaching) soon.
