New hair-do


Went on the boat yesterday, carried 81 people in 8 trips ( 7 normal + 1 special ) and raised over 100GBP for trust funds. Given we can only carry 12 at once ( all children count as 1 person ) an average of 10 per trip wasn't bad.

The most interesting part was when a young boy ( 18 months or so old ) decide to liven things up by throwing his sandal in the canal! Anyway, a quick conversation with the person steering and we were able to recover it on the way back.

Two not so nice things.

Firstly I had a sudden hay-fever attack when the wind picked up. I think the pollen must have been collecting round the flowers due to the still air and came down in a lump as the wind picked up. ( I'm now fairly certain that this was happened last week and it wasn't a cold at all. )

Secondly forgetting to put sun screen and hat on. Now got red arms and a very red neck! :-((

Forgot to mention I'm setting up IM clients on my main PC and PDA. is the ID

I'm using Jabber as I went looking what other LJers use and decided Jabber seemed a good one to use. ( Thanks loriba, I first saw it in your info. )

It may be a day or two until things are fully set up as the PDA client isn't from the same place as the PC client and transferring the info may be fun.

I will also re-register for ICQ and possibly AIM. ( I found my old ICQ number but the ICQ site didn't seem too keen on letting me re-use it! :-) )

IM on broadband should be much better than it was on dial-up. :-)
