Pillow Talk

The scene:
Late at night having just gone to bed.
I say "I haven't a clue what I'm going to wear to the do on Saturday. Any ideas?"
Hubby responds "I don't know."
I say "You've seen everything in my wardrobe, what looks nicest?"
Hubby - "I don't know, try on three outfits and I'll choose."
Me -"No, you must have some idea. What looks OK?"
Hubby - "I know wear your brown ribbed top."
I think for a moment. "No, I don't have a brown ribbed top."
Hubby [said with conviction] -" Yes you do, the v necked one."
Me - "No, I definitely do not have a brown ribbed v necked top."
Hubby is now hysterical with laughter and I mean completely hysterical, unable to speak, curled up in a ball.
I say - "You must be thinking of someone else."

Running in circles

Thing 1 has been chosen for the regional cross country race representing his school. He was given this news at school today. He is very excited and feel he needs to waste no time and train for this event. So he is currently running round in circles around the house in the garden in his school uniform. [No time to change]. Navigating around all the shrubs and plants and pathways, over and over. He looks so funny.

My new laptop

My new lap top has arrived. I'm on my third laptop in the last 2 years. My upmarket Compaq [4 months old died for good a few weeks ago. During it's life it had been repaired twice. Currys were very good and offered a replacement. However, all my research work was lost. I am now using a new Samsung. It is quite robust. I am being really careful not to put it directly on my lap. You're not meant to, you know? The fan cannot cool the internal workings and the machine dies an early death. I know through experience now to back up everything important, but what do you do with websites that you come across that you think I'll save that - I may want to look at that another day? I'm not aware of a quick and easy way to back them up. If you have any ideas let me know.
