Drizzly ol' Monday

It's a bit of a late coach trip home from work this evening; a few troubles cropped up this afternoon, rapidly followed by a few more before hometime. I'm living in the hope that the things I did to fix it will remain in that state at least until tomorrow, when I daresay it'll all start again. Microsoft (or perhaps rather those who write unreliable software for windows) have a lot to answer to. Or for. (But not three).

Cath, Martin and Luke came to visit yesterday - the first time we've seen our newest nephew in the five weeks of his life. He's doing very well, and Cath appears to have recovered from the (fairly standard?) traumatic first birth. We'll be seeing them again on Saturday, when it's Tilly's birthday party - in spite of our geographical proximity, it's odd that I don't see my brothers and sisters as often as I could. Such, I reckon, is modern life.

After a few days off last week, and jury service the two weeks before, today starts the first 'normal' week of work in a long time. I realised this when I saw Barry, my aloe vera plant, and recalled that I hadn't actually watered him or his children (who - rather excitingly - now seem to number four, so any suggestions for names of Helen, Daventry and Allegra's new sibling are welcome) for nearly a month.

There's not much else to report, really. Pete and I played Unreal Tournament (the original version) until quite late on Friday night, and I don't believe I actually won a match.

My mobile phone is still not working, so I've researched 'mobile phone fixers' on the internet, and from what the man at AceGames had to say, it's probably the power switch; if you've got an 8310, you might end up suffering as well. For £18, though, he believes he can fix it, and I don't think I will deny him that claim.
