Countdown to freedom

Well, it’s nearly time for holidays.

the coming couple of months I have to look forward to two weeks in Cornwall,
3 days in a field at the Cropredy Festival plus August Bank Holiday.. so
that makes almost three weeks off.. ok, 3 working weeks minus 2 days.

the weekend I managed to get the final bits needed to upgrade my Dad’s PC
when I go down to Cornwall, so that’s good. OK, well, the only things being
transfered from the previous machine which I’m upgrading from are the hard
disk, floppy disk, keyboard, mouse and monitor, but it’s an upgrade really,

He says he’s taking legal advice on his liability. Hmm.. this can do nothing
but get worse now that lawyers are involved. He also acused me of causing
the accident by wrecklessly stopping in front of him!
