All Change

Unfortunately my laptop chose a very inappropriate time to go bugger up.  Fortunately it was only the screen and not the hard drive. Unfortunately laptops are rather pricey,  Fortunately it happened to go bugger up at a Bank Holiday weekend and there were offers a plenty.  Unfortunately it was a Bank Holiday weekend and going to crowded shopping centres is not my idea of fun.  Fortunately a spanking new and outrageously large Best Buy had just opened nearby and in a under an hour of checking out brands and avoiding dodgy salesmen, a shiny new Widescreen HD Dell Inspiron 1564 i3 250GB processor with windows 7 was mine...all mine.  And thus my old laptop of the last five years...with around 50 years worth of use...after being picked for usable parts, is on it's way to the dump.

And now for something cute and informative:

Wandering the Witterings

All of a sudden it's hotter than Cairo, so the beach has been a prominent feature of my weekend.  I, unlike many, chose not to venture into the water as the temperature is somewhere in the 12 degrees region and I prefer life without hypothermia ta very much.

The Witterings west of Bognor is a haven for sun worshippers, beach lovers and wildlife twitchers and is home to East Head, a sand dune spit which covers 10 hectares of land.  Today it looked pretty much like paradise in the sun.

Not the kind of beach normally associated with these parts....

Alas not my handiwork but pretty apt considering our neck of the wood has been hotter than most of the tourist hotspots

More Bluebells

Just adding a few further piccies of the bluebell wood, which looked rather picturesque yesterday.
