11th December

Visible to anyone in the world

I spent the whole day on the sofa after something creaked in my back when bending down to put a plate in the dishwasher.  So, as I was unable to move, I wrote a illustrated guide on how to use iplayer outside the UK, legally, with proxy servers etc. French TV is not very exciting, the only good thing is that unlike in Britain they use older female news readers (in France the term ‘une dame d'un certain age’ is used, it sounds so much nicer than middle-aged)

Philip has started putting up Christmas decorations in anticipation of the arrival of the children. The plan is to dig up last year's Christmas tree, put it in a pot over Christmas, then plant it out again. I am not sure if there is a limit to how often one can do that, I suppose the limiting factor is the size of the root ball, we will try & leave it intact.
