Computers are wonderful…. until something goes wrong. We had a letter saying that our electricity board needed to change the meters. They were supposed to do it 3 years ago, but never arrived. Unfortunately they came this time and asked me to switch off any computers I had on. I did, but I never thought of removing the router from it’s socket. When the electrician had finished and went on to his next job, I switched on my laptop to find I had no internet connection and nothing I did would bring it back. All my computers were the same and refused to believe I used Virgin.net. I wasted day one trying to get the Netgear Router to connect, decided to get a new one and chose a Belkin. I still couldn’t connect. I was determined not to pay anyone to come and set it up for me and after 3 days I’m back online.
In between I finished a piece of work I did in a class with Margaret Beal. I have a small room overlooking the estuary, grandly called – The Sunroom. It’s really only a narrow strip, but I decided to have a bit of fun and it now has a nautical look and I thought this piece had the right shapes and colours.
The tide left this old boat which has floated from somewhere. It has a big split at the back and will never float again, so I shall follow it with my camera as it deteriorates.
I love seeing the large tankers on the horizon like this, this one looked really good at sunset.
