Heat, Hair, Big Cock (pea), Mint Sauce and Computers

Just a few silly little things.
It is sometimes quite hot in winter (mostly cold though) but some days are extreme as this sign from Northcote says!
Hot!
Liams hair with thanks to Dyson.

We went today to pick up a computer for the kids. It was on Trademe (a Kiwi version of Ebay). It was an absolute bargain …. whole package for 56 bucks (£25 give or take). specs as follows:
CPU Speed: 2 GHz
Memory: 512 MB
Hard drive: 1 GB
CD / DVD: CD reader
Monitor: CRT monitor
Computer for sale, includes hard drive, monitor, keyboard & mouse. Old system but does have windows xp. Will be excellent for beginners.

Pretty good except the Hard Drive we thought. The kids were SO excited. I was fed up of them smashing my computer and colouring in on the LCD screen! I got it set up immediately so the kids would settle …… reality strikes!

It was old but the contents of the box were too old.
CPU Speed: 200Mhz!
Memory: 64 MB
Hard drive: 3 GB
CD / DVD: CD reader
Monitor: CRT monitor
Running Windows ME but with Office XP …. it is slow and not as described ….. waiting for a return phone call …. kids gutted!
It wasn’t all bad. We bought it from a place that is almost at the end of the Whangparaoa (Fung-ar-par-rower) peninsula. Right at the end is Shakespear Regional Park which is lovely. We all walked along the beach collecting shells. Distant views of the city but as far from it as you can imagine in attitude (can a place have an attitude?).
