I've just spent a week visiting.

Last Thursday evening I came up to Sheffield, and on Friday Julia and I went on to York to see the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain -- which was jolly good. Some of you might enjoy going to see them.

Saturday and Sunday was spent assembling flat-pack furniture from a well-known Scandinavian retailer, and now Julia has lots more storage for her clothes.

On Monday we both went down to see my mother in Devon for a few days. While we were there I sent Julia and Mother off to go clothes shopping together while I went to see my brother, and to study his slow computer. I'm accustomed to sitting down in front of a slow computer, removing a shedload of unwanted software and updating the anti-malware provision, and then releasing a much faster machine back to the user. But in this case there was hardly anything unwanted running... and physical memory was still bumping up around 80% used and it was spending all its spare time swapping. A few moments with an online retailer followed, and this morning some new RAM arrived and I was able to demonstrate the difference between Vista-on-512MB-RAM and Vista-on-2048MB-RAM, giving him another couple of years use out of his machine for about forty quid.

Back in Sheffield tonight, and a lovely Indian meal, mmmmmm. Home tomorrow morning.

I *love* UOGB. We have tickets to see them in Hull in January. It's very odd booking gigs oop North ...
