~ Shiny new Netbook ~
DH has very kindly bought me a Netbook, so that when I go to Washington I'll be able to communicate with home. My mobile doesn't work in the US, as it's only your basic pay-as-you-go handset and, as we all know, hotels charge a small mortgage if you use the telephone in your room. This way I will be able to Skype my boys and to email. That I'll be able to blog about my adventures the day they happen is an added bonus!
