The Alien has landed

Well it has arrived!  I had quite worked myself into a tizzy about the darned thing so that when it eventually arrived, the screen was nowhere near as bad as I had thought.  It is huge but I don't find it as appalling as I thought it would and the picture is fantastic so it more than has its benefits.

Dick has been busy today receiving friends and family and it has been great to see them. I have become a dab hand at providing cups of tea, whisky and whatever else is required although I must apologise to my visitors today for the lack of biscuits!  I'll try and do better tomorrow.

The lawn has been mowed thanks to our lovely next-door neighbour and I am hoping to get some gardening done in the not too distant future.  Summer must be on its way

Great to see you both yesterday and find Dick in fine form.
How miserable it was coming home to view my miserable 28in TV!
The 'tot' of Langvullin Malt went down well
Glad that Monty recognised us, but in 5 mins flat destroyed his £2 present

Have you had a go with the remote yet or is Dick in control of the Alien??! Glad it's not quite so scary as you had expected.

Hi there, thank you for sharing your life over the last few months. I rarely have anything to actually write but the vibes are being teleported to you! On a rather trite note - I love those trollbeads - never heard of them before but very taken with them.

Visitors who don't bring their own biscuits should be refused admission. You are charging admission, aren't you?

Good to see that Dick had written something on the 'blog'. This is my first time too so we are 'virgins' together. Good to know that you are never to old to learn something new!
