My laptop, in the immortal words of Monty and his Pythons, has “Ceased to be! ‘it’s expired and gone to meet ‘it’s maker! ‘it’s a stiff! Bereft of life, ‘it rests in peace! If you hadn’t nailed ‘it to the perch ‘it’d be pushing up the daisies! ‘It’s metabolic processes are now ‘istory! it’s off the twig! ‘it’s kicked the bucket, ‘it’s shuffled off ‘it’s mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-LAPTOP!!”

So I am now at the tender mercy of Mrs Bangordub in terms of access to her Laptop which for some unfathomable reason she seems to consider a competitor for my attentions.

Service will therefore be intermittent until Thursday next when my independence will be restored. Any strange postings or rude replies to comments in the meantime…..well you know who to blame 😉
