I'm in shock, I've gone and blown a lot of money. It goes against the grain really but I had the refund from the water company and that more than covers it. Oh, I know it would have paid for my holiday, but there is £150 left over so that will go towards it. And I have been saving up so I wont be skint, there is still some left in the reserve pot.
So what have I spent £350 on, please don't tell me off, but I have bought a new gadget to play with. Something that will be used for my hobby, to make it more fun, and to make it easier for me.
So what is my hobby? Wandering around in different places, taking photographs, and....... blogging. I have splashed out on a Netbook, I can hear you gasp. I will tell you why. When I go away I have up to 300 photo's to sort out, I see lots of places, I make a few notes, but then it takes another week or more to get it all on the blog. With my memory not being as good as it was, I forget some of the stories, and you get a few waffly notes. So to make it easier for me, I will be able to post as I travel, hopefully most nights.
I go back to PC World tomorrow to pick it up, they are setting it up for me with everything I need. Easiest if I just pay them £15 for doing this. I will do a test post tomorrow night, keep your fingers crossed that it works.
