We are alright. To tell the truth I didn't even take the photo; Bree's mum did. All I knew at the time was that there was a lot of rain.
Last week's big project: taking down the rotten wooden shed, and erecting a new aluminium one. It was a big project, but we got by with a little help from our friends. Tuesday we destroyed the old shed, with help from Dave and Will. It was rotten enough we could kick down the walls. Hulk smash! This was the fun bit. On Wednesday Dave helped us erect the roof of the new shed. This was the unfun bit. A thousand screws, metal parts that didn't line up, and crazy instructions. On Thursday Rocio showed up with her magic electric screwdriver, and progress accelerated. The shed is up, though doors need to be attached. Anyway, it provided a handy box to store all the junk from the old shed, clearing the patio for yesterday's BBQ in honour of Bree's birthday. Which was a most excellent evening!
This post comes from home, via the new wireless router that has just arrived, to complement our 2Mbps ADSL connection that was activated last week. Yay!
Well there isn't much more to say. I'm about to go to University to play in our weekly football match. No doubt we'll be thrashed, as usual. The kittens are rough-housing, as usual. The write up of my algorithm is going ok. I hoped to get it finished before my supervision today, but that won't happen. It is hard to get work done when one is being used as a climbing frame. And yeah, the broadband, that might have been a distraction.
