The Bad news is that our brand-spanking new computer has gone belly-up as of yesterday. I am sure that the fact we were watching the final LOTR film the night before was a sheer coincidence :-)
Said computer makes bleeps but does nothing else in the start-up routine, so odds are it is pretty serious. We are waiting to hear from the computer company when they will come to fix it.
Thank goodness we still have Old Faithful !
I forgot to mention the good news; when I was fencing on Saturday, we each had to fight every other non-coaching person there. I won 3 out of my 6 matches. If someone had said to me six months ago that I would be fighting in matches against youngsters who have been fighting for several years and actually managing to win three of them, I would have laughed. I was really rather pleased with my result :-0
One match was against a very tall man, who easily trounced me, yet DD3 (age 10) in turn beat him. But I in turn beat her, for a change :-)
