Took papers to the notaire today for my house www.chateaukeyboard.com that I'm selling - so a drive up to Ledignan. The Ales road drives me nuts.... once you are on it, it's virtually impossible to overtake, so every time you find yourself stuck behind a weekend driver or a lorry.... it's nearly the end now, so I don't have to go to Ledignan again soon..... final signature 26th February.... phew.

Have given in with my English phone directory - and typed 23 pages of information again. For some reason google docs that I've been using to bring all the information together corrupted the file, and despite copying and pasting the information into Open Office Writer and Word I couldn't preview the document - difficult when I want the document in A5 and two pages to one sheet. Sorry to be so obsessive about this... but it's taken days off my life.... not to mention cramp in my hands.

In a fit of peek - I ordered a new printer... the old one just won't feed pages anymore... it's fine for just one page, but printing 20 pages of poster for the www.BritsNimes.com second hand book market is just too much. Ordering from Amazon.fr actually worked out the cheapest as it was free postage... an other company was charging Euro16! Am very excited at prospect of a new printer.... will give me hours of life back. Sad huh?
