Its been a funny old summer!

Yes, very strange – my situation has gone through a series of ups, downs and ups again and I have been very bored on occasion,

But this week-end took the strangest turn of all. Mrs W. is a confirmed technophobe – the Sky+ remains a mystery after years, and as for computing – lets say the few attempts I have made to introduce to the PC as a labour saving device had always ended in marital discord.
However on Friday Mrs W. decided she wanted to have a Nintendo DS and start playing brain-training games. And she has.
Wow – this is the first positive engagement with computing based technology, she has rapidly become obsessed and I can only hope that even though she is accessing a UI on a very small screen it will be a pathway to a point where I can help her use this as a entry to the world of grown up computing. 
Everything changes
