Well the computer has fired up and seems to be working. While it was fixing itself last night I had a bit of a clean up in computer room. I discovered some shoeboxes hidden away that are full of junk! I have a load more boxes in the loft that I know are full of similar obsolete items.
One of my many tasks in the coming weeks as well as doing some decorating will be to sort through all my stuff and either dump or sell most of it (probably at a carboot sale)
