The last few days have been a bit of a blurr. I can't remmeber much about them except that the weather has been very dull and grey, drizzly and depressing. Archie went off to Durham on a school trip overnight and stayed in a creaky house just after going on a "ghost tour" of the old town in a hailstorm. Trying to illicit anmore information is like trying to get blood out of a stone. One is confronted by Kevin the teenager. Due mainly to tiredness- staying up til 4 in the morning talking.
Hazel is back at college and all the drama and stress that involves. The stories she tells make your ears curl and I couldn't possibly tell them here which is a shame as they would liven up this dull blog quite well!
Went into town yesterday and tried to exchange Hazel's new ipod for another as this one seems to freeze up every five minutes. The Mr. Bean type character in Currys said it was easy to fix - juts go to the Apple website and download the relevant software - he made it seem so easy and we were idiots to be bothering him with this small matter.
Found some old silent movies on DVD and video in a charity shop. "Birth Of A Nation" by D.W. Griffiths and two features by Harold Lloyd "The Freshman" and "Safety Last".
