Quiet day after a busy one

It was a good Fuddle; we didn't drink too much, not really, (so we didn't get fuddled at the Fuddle) but enjoyed excellent company throughout and there were loads and loads of different kinds of grub.

Today being Sunday, we felt entitled to a lazy start, checking emails and surfing the web from in bed whilst drinking our tea. Finally staggering up, we ambled round to the shops to get bits and pieces and a loaf of bread for lunch.

Elanor and Sally turned up just afterwards, not long after I'd sorted the solid fuel delivery. We took Sally to the field and threw the frisbee for her whilst Sheila video'ed proceedings on her new Flip. It's an amazing beast, smaller than her still camera (a Lumix) but producing very good video if the subject is close enough.

Further away the focus gets pretty iffy. We'll work out how to transfer the result onto this iPad or my Mini and then I can put a sample up as a demo.

Since then, we've been loafing indoors; Sheila experimenting with the video segments and me offering odd bits of advice and looking in the App Store for a better music player than the very basic one that comes with iOS these days. There doesn't seem to be much that has anything like the functionality of iTunes proper but I'm presently trying out the free version of Bongiovi DPS. If I like it, I may well pay the small amount of cash required to get rid of the adverts.

Tomorrow is our last full day in the marina before going to Boothby for Christmas; I'll blog one last time then may not do much until we get back.
