This weekend the younger-by-one-minute son managed to 'kill' his motherboard whilst installing a new hard drive (he blamed next doors constantly barking dog - it does grate on your nerves after half an hour of listening to it). He had a motherboard and processor upgrade on his Christmas wish list - for those of you that understand computers this is because he wanted to swap from AMD to Intel. So rather than buy a replacement that itself would be replaced in a few months we got the new ones. It does mean he will only have a pair of socks and box of chocolates for Christmas day.

I had intended to blog the last few Scavenger Hunt photos but have spent the weekend with a dreadful cold - the upside is that I sat and did very little for the whole weekend. I did watch lots of Rugby, and even as much as I wanted England to win I have to admire Wales for their sheer grit and determination. It was a game for the history books and well done to all the men involved.
I'm sure Sian (who's meme this is - please pop over and visit) was more than happy with Ireland's performance, and I also sat cheering Scotland on against the USA. Am I the only one who thought that the US's fly half (look at me picking up the lingo!) looked like Zak Efron? Far too pretty for a rugby pitch :)
My wonderful OH decided to try and fix a minor problem with my car and managed to drain the battery as a result! We got some jump leads and have managed to start the car but the battery isn't holding the charge so looks like we need to buy a new one.
Well I have an update - car started fine. Both to take eldest-by-one-minute son to casualty AND to bring him back again with a half-slab on. School PE lesson - don't go in goal! Oh and we have OFSTED in tomorrow.
Thanks for popping by
