So here I am once more…

It’s a while since I had a long session on my own computer – too long in fact.

But today was the day when it was booted up, the latest version of the system installed and one or two apps that are good to have around.

So, it’s back to the future with more words and more pictures too.

Here’s a few pics that I’ve looked at in readiness for the next few weeks…

Going with the flow…

Shouting lava, lava, lava…

You couldn’t see the source, but these shots were taken near the first base on Mt. Etna, Sicily last Wednesday.

It’s just over four hours since we touched down at Manchester Airport following our flight from Catania and, yes, we had a great week over in Sicily on what for us was a drastic change from our usual methods of travelling.

A package holiday with TUI…

They made us an offer we couldn’t refuse just four Mondays ago, so we were in warm climes rather than in a cottage on the North York Moors for a week.

We did see the top of Etna, but as I haven’t downloaded the images from the Nikon compact yet, there’s just these two from the iPad to set the scene.

Did we enjoy Sicily? Oh yes, so much so that we’ve already talked about a return visit.

The trip report will be along shortly and it may be sooner rather than later as I haven’t had my work rota for the next three weeks or so clarified yet.

I know what my hours are supposed to be, but these may change as it’s a major holiday weekend next weekend and a mid-season sale is due to start on Tuesday next.
