Well we’ve made it back. The whole posting while we were away didn’t quite pan out, as the current blight on all things electrical extended to the holiday itself. Mr Stoatie managed to leave my laptop bag at home, it was safely packed away in the van, but he took it out for a bit of last minute downloading and then managed to leave it behind. It contained my camera, netbook, mp3, phone charger etc. Luckily (for him) he still had his tablet and charger so at least one of us could sit and read the paper/surf the net/phone home/take pictures ( – I hope the sarcasm is coming across here!) Needless to say he is not going to live it down for a long while..
The pc is still poorly but at least I now have some access to the net and so I’ll try and catch up with all the posts that have been backing up in the next few days. Meanwhile a view of Staithes from the harbour wall.
