You can tell by the way I use my walk

Well, no surprise I haven’t heard anything from HP about my laptop being replaced or repaired any time soon. I keep being offered a pick up Monday to Friday but they can’t guarantee that it would be picked up at a time I could be in. However they will pick it up from work address, my work won’t allow that, or I can take it to the nearest DPD depot, which is 2 hours bus journey away. Needless to say the depot closes at 7 which is about an hour before I could get there. I have even offered to have it repaired locally if they pay for it, still only offering me a pickup on a day to suit me which they won’t offer (Saturday is the only day I can guarantee to be in).

Anyhoo I won’t go into that further as I’m up for my dad’s 90th birthday bash of a high tea in a posh restaurant, more later when I return from it. I don’t know what to expect so it would be interesting to read if any one else has been to one.

Well, high tea starter was toast, butter, jam or marmalade. This was followed by a main meal, choice from the restaurant menu, steak pie, steak, fish & chips or mac & cheese. This was followed by cakes, tea or coffee. Then we decamped to the bar area for the birthday cake and chats, as well as family pictures of dad and various family members. Everyone started to disappear about 5:45 and dad was being taken home by my youngest brother before he took his eldest daughter home to Aberdeen.

Hope to get some pictures soon to post here. I was too tired to run around and take any myself.
