So this Friday, My Favourite Thing is actually this Friday. A number of reasons
Reason no 1. Friday is the new weekend. This year both Gordon and I are working reduced hours and this Friday is our first day off together. There will be more, but this one is the only first one!
Reason no 2. We went for a lovely walk with the dogs for almost 2 hours this morning. The walk started in the snow, and finished in the sunshine. I think Liska loves the snow.
And she certainly loves the boss
Reason no 3. My new computer arrived today. Woo hoo!. My old Dell Inspiron has served me well for almost 7 years but is showing it's age. It's slow, the touch pad doesn't work properly, the battery is shot and occassionally it just sticks it's electronic thumb up it's electronic a**e and won't work! It's had new. go-faster stripes fitted and I've spent a fair bit over the last two years keeping it going but it's time to send it to a well earned retirement. But it's been brilliant, and when it came to choosing a new one, I had to stick with Dell. So meet my new Dell Inspiron
|Look, there's not a single mark on that screen!|
I'm not allowed to even turn it on because it's Gordon's job to set it all up for me, and he's not doing that until tomorrow. So this could be my old Dell's last post - literally and figuratively.
Reason no 4. Steak, Mushrooms and home made oven chips for tea (or dinner if you're posh). We went shopping the the Cash & Carry today and they have great meat and fish counters. We bought a lovely piece of salmon which has been cut up and frozen, and some steak for dinner. Those of you who live in America will not appreciate how easily you can buy good steak. It's not so available here, and the stuff in the supermarkets is only good for souling your shoes. But Makro have lovely steak, and we treated ourselves to a piece each. Guess which is mine?
Gordon actually didn't think he would be able to eat all of his, but I never doubted him for a moment!
I've had a lovely Friday, and hope you did too, whatever your favourite thing is!
