With a crashing sense of irony, or make that an ironic sense of crashing, the arrival of the Japanese boy seems to have coincided with everything breaking. They come in threes these things - car indicator, computer and (get this) the beer fridge. All knacked; same day.
So, if you want something try calling or texting. I will only be doing emails about once a day. Thankfully I have a very nice Fujitsu laptop in the house and the PC Doctor is coming for lunch on Sunday.
The last thing my computer did before its final demise was to help the PC Doctor by searching for curry houses in Dumfries. At which point crashing irony rolled out its bed-mat and decided to stay for a few weeks.
