A Close Shave

A close shave...but not of the leg hair variety. No, it's winter for goodness sake, one needs as much natural 'foliage' as possible to stay warm on those days when Mr C has his Scrooge-Heating-Head on.
The close shave came in the form of a last minute reprieve for the printer which almost met the sharp end of a heavy implement yesterday.  Mid afternoon, after almost 24hrs of wrestling with wires & instructions, installing & uninstalling, pressing this button & that knob and having a major nervous breakdown, in rode my knight in shining armour (well...my genius-with-a-compoooooter-brother turned up in his silver Renault Megane ) and saved the day. That said, it took him a further 5 hours to work out that the printer was working fine and that a heap of Windows updates had messed up the printers program and my poor fluffy-bunny-wunny-printer-winter (that's enough sucking-up!) was innocent all the time (Gulp!)
Hoorah for my Bro'!
This was to be my final Christmas card posting this year but I've missed 2 people (EEK!) so I may have a couple more to share later in the week. Thank goodness my darling, sweet, gorgeous printer is working (do you think printers hold grudges?)
