On my third coffee and life is returning to my brain. Hand-eye coordination is approaching 80% and improving.

Our joint achievement as a household was to lie-in till 11.  big_laugh That may sound like an odd thing to call an achievement, but in a house full of cats who wake you for breakfast when then get hungry by jumping on you, biting your ear or patting your nose with a paw - claws extended - and a dog who wakes you up by barking when he needs to go to the loo, it's rare we ever sleep beyond 8 a.m., no matter how late we went to bed!

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

All up for breakfast about 11. Son was the only one who stayed up till midnight. Daughter reported hearing tiny rodent-y feet overhead in the night, so I think that means sending son into to loft to put down poison. cat needed, but I don't know one I could borrow for a few days!

P felt like having some exercise and went out when the rain was at its worst eeek to partially dig out a stump so it can be chainsawed off as low as possible tomorrow.

Happy New Year, everyone.

Over Christmas, I got Skype set up on my Dad's computer so we could do video chats. Shortly after midnight this morning, we got a video call and answered it and waved and shouted Happy New Year to my parent. All we could hear was my mum repeatedly saying 'no sound'. We called them back on a different computer but got the same thing.

I ended up writing 'Turn the speakers on' on a piece of paper and holding it up in front of the webcam. Somehow this managed to sort it out and they managed to hear us properly wink

we use skype lots for keeping in touch with family and friends as it is free. Well done for sorting the problem, at least they had the camera working which our son always has problems with!
