Saturday was a day for sorting things out. I'd packed my car with the remainder of the items from my room in Farnborough on Friday lunchtime. I had this stuff to unpack and run to the upstairs of the house in Reading - there's now a big pile with my name on it. Following this, there was further work to be done, sorting out other things in the house.
At some point, I cut thirty pieces of wood from 6 pieces of MDF. I'm not sure why, but I did as I was asked.
At another point, I wiped a computer and then wrestled with it to make its video driver work. For what it's worth the HP Pavilion 423 comes with onboard VGA supplied in the form of an Intel 815 chip.
The day went by at its own pace and at some point I got Chinese food. Woohoo.
We woke up on Sunday and decided to go to Longleat. This is the stately home of Lord Bath, who has a collection of wild animals in a Safari Park attached to his big house. We went round the Safari Park, having bought tickets entitling us to enjoy all of the estate's attractions. The safari park was fun, especially the bit where the monkeys climb on people's cars and vandalise them.
My car wasn't vandalised, but we laughed heartily as others were... one car got a poo on it. Brilliant!
Sadly, the rain started as soon as we attempted to leave the car, so we went home instead. We can go back to the estate any time this season and use the rest of the ticket, though I suspect we'll be buying another ticket to go around the safari park.
