...or maybe we don't

Mrs Mouse wanted to be alone with GrannyMouse so I had Mouse duty for most of the weekend.

Saturday night was spent at GGs with the MiniMice and MiniGGs having a sleepover. Beer was consumed, but was careful not to repeat previous visits trick of consuming bottle of wine.

Anonimouse upgraded GGs laptop to WinXP SP3 and somehow triggered a piece of spyware that refused to lie down and die. Took a combination of AVG, Spybot and about 24 hours of scanning to clear up the system... :-(

Don't think a Thinkpad T20 with 256MB is really up to the job, so said I'd get some more memory. Probably almost as cheap as to replace laptop; 512MB of 144pin PC-100/133 SODIMMs seem to be about £30.

Hopes of a legover as well as a sleepover were dashed by GG being on the net till 4am in the morning.

Borrowed a lawnmower off GG's neighbour to finally get round to cutting the grass. Took ages with the damn Flymo type machine that filled its grassbox every 15 seconds. Lawn was hacked but short.

Got lots of brownie points by showing Doctor Horrible (AKA Doogie Howser finds his Dark Side) to Mrs Mouse.

bagging the grass ? by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #1 Mon Jul 21, 2008 at 11:50:44 AM EST
mulching mowers man.. No dumping the grass into the landfill.. And raise the blade height, short grass dies fast and lets the weeds in..

Mower was borrowed. Around those parts of the country they have green recyling bins, in which goes the cuttings. No bags.
