Birthday Meal at the Boathouse

It was my birthday on Friday, so we parked the children with a babysitter (thanks June!) and went out for a meal at the Cherwell Boat House in Oxford. It was lovely. The food was great, the surroundings were understated and elegant and the company was, of course, excellent.

Web Protection

I recommend K9 Web Protection. I installed it a couple of weeks ago to ensure D doesn't come across anything he shouldn't in t'interweb. So far the product has been brilliant!

Shamefully Acquired

The dangerous shiny article mentioned in the last post has been acquired. I am now the proud owner of a new Citroen C3 pluriel. After the famous new AX debacle of the late eighties I promised myself I would never buy a new car again. However, I was seduced. I think it started more than three years ago when we were shopping for a sensible mpv for the family. I saw and liked the pluriel in the showroom but we were definitely not in the market for an impractical convertible. It was sensible all the way with a second hand picasso. However, with the old Peugeot looking rather long in the tooth and likely to cost serious money soon, it was time for a change for my commuting transport. Enter the pluriel. More later. Perhaps a picture if I can figure out where all the other pictures on this blog have gone.
