Wonderful party and delicious free fonts

We’ve just come back from a wonderful party – many old friends we haven’t seen for a couple of years. Michael’s birthday card was produced using some wonderful fonts that are free to download from the Conqueror paper website.

Peering at the computer

Trying to find a new door handle for the car on e-Bay. Our resourceful mechanic moved the back door-handle to the front to get the car through the MOT but we still need to be able to open the back door. Another year without having to think about buying a newer car, thank goodness.
