Nice one, Sam.

I don't need my crutches any more.  :)

Yay! Well done! Does that mean you can ride again too?

Can we use them as a rounders bat on Saturday? :thumbsup:
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Good for you, Liz, but please continue to be gentle with yourself for a while yet.

Pleased to hear that you are off crutches Liz.

The world is a lovely place to day.

^^^ Was it good???

I'd love to be able to say yes but..... no.  About the best thing that I can say about it is that it's fun.  I think my movie palate has been spoiled by my recent Dark Knight viewing.

I found the storyline trite and jumbled, the Prince deeply unscary and the whole treatment of the Lords and Ladies frankly insulting!  The Tooth Fairies were great though.  I think that the film richly deserves its certification rating.

Sadly not.  :(

The very very very earliest I'm allowed to ride again will be the FNRttC, and even then only if I feel utterly recovered.

Nice one, Sam.

Maybe.  ;D

Perhaps you and Sam could go out on a vigilante mission together, looking for muggers.... ;D

It just poared with rain, and my window let a splattering in so it was like being gently splashed at my desk, a kind of outside, whilst inside feeling  :)

Now it is lovely and sunny, and aircraft are taking off over us again!* Yay!

I swapped the hard drive in my PC and successfully cloned the old hard drive. Upgraded an 80GB hard drive to 500GB for $109  :thumbsup:

I've just met in person for the first time a 12-year-old who I've been trying to get into the UK for two years.

An' his auntie gave me a big bunch of flowers.

I gather that it might lock itself again when you connect it to i-Tunes.

Nice. It must be very satisfying when something like that happens.

Sorry, but that is a totally different beastie. Googling a lot and then sifting out the misinformation is what I had to do with this iPhone, plus a fair amount of trial and error. Good luck!

This afternoon we set off on our first tour.  Its only for 2 nights and the distances are very modest.  I have toured before but 20 years ago, Kirsty and Twinkle Toes are tour virgins.  Kirsty is very nervous, I am very excited, not sure what Twinkle Toes thinks. 

There will be a ride report.

Thanks, I hope we will.  I am pretty certain we will be getting wet but I am telling the troops that's all part of the fun.  Not sure how convinced they are  ;D

Having met Twinkle toes, I think she'll love it, Kirsty will come round to it too, it's just the thought of it is worse.
