Haven't written anything for a while, but there's not a lot going on here.
The weather throughout January has been grey and wet. In fact we've had so much rain that the water companies are saying they'll soon be able to lift the hosepipe bans!
Work is....well, would you be keen on getting up in the dark at 6am on a cold January morning?
Got around to booking the holiday over the last couple of weeks. We're going to visit Centerparcs once again, though a different village this time. Also, taken a gamble on booking a cottage just a few hundred yards from the sea, although I've booked it for the height of summer so it should be idyllic. It is amazing sometimes how motivational crappy weather can be when it comes to thinking about holidays!
My lovely little Nokia Communicator has started falling apart. Though the phones are way out of contract and can easily be upgraded, Vodafone just can't seem to offer any decent upgrade deals. Also Nokia appear to have discontinued the communicator range so I've been forced to broaden my horizons. So, I've plumped for one of these smart devices running the dreaded Microsoft Windows. Looks very functional - it is far from small but does come with a VGA screen. So it should be ideal for the sort of stuff I do on the train. Plus it is a 3G phone so should connect at broadband speeds rather than at modem speeds. The only downside is that I have been forced to move away from Voda (with whom I was perfectly happy) and go over to O2. I can't help thinking I am taking my life in my hands as regards trusting them to port all the numbers correctly - my handset alone has both a fax number and a data number associated with it, on top of the voice number.
And I will miss my little 9500...
