After a great deal of window shopping and price comparison, I finally purchased a new laptop (at Heathrow Airport Sony Shop). It was my first departure out Terminal 5 and I even managed to avoid going into the very fashionable and expensive shops that the Terminal has and head straight into Sony. Next time maybe! My third arrival at Terminal 5 (6 days before) however had been less successful, when my luggage didn’t arrive by courier until the 5th and penultimate day for work. The bag had gone to Bangkok ….

Back to the laptop… I even have a wireless connection set up which is great for those of us who work out of home. I am extremely grateful to my neighbour, Carlo, who is a genius with IT systems, who did the wireless set up for us and to our IT support team in the UK who set up the network connections through to Guildford and loaded the anti virus programmes. Up and running now safely and securely with English language software (it would just be too complicated to work with Italian software), able to work from every room! and with a choice of views and temperatures as to which floor I am on. I’m still yet to work in the garden.. perhaps when it gets cooler! It’s been full immersion 30 degree sunshine for many days now…
