Hari and I are now in York for a couple of weeks, house-sitting for my parents. We aimed to come through yesterday, but actually did so on Saturday night.
As well as bringing clothes, I needed to bring my entire Mac home with me for a reason I’ll mention soon (which is also why this post is coming to you today and not Saturday night or yesterday) – which is easier said than done, since neither of us can yet drive and so we had to take the train. So that’s not just the desktop unit (which admittedly is tiny and fits snugly in my rucksack, but also the screen, keyboard and mouse. In fact, in all, this was all of the electronic equipment that, between 2 of us, we took on the train:
- 1 x Mac Mini
- 1 x Wireless Keyboard and Mouse
- 1 x Corded mouse
- 1 x 17″ LCD screen
- 1 x Laptop
- 1 x Digital Camera
- 1 x Dell PDA
- 1 x Bluetooth mini-keyboard
- 2 x mobile phones
If that had all gone missing, we could probably make a £2000 insurance claim, which is scary. That all managed to fit in one large case and two large rucksacks, as well as all of our clothes and things. I also had over £100 cash on me too, just to make things even more edgy.
We’re not doing a lot this week, which is deliberate since we’ve both had several very tiring and stressful weeks at university, and just want to get away from it all. But we will hopefully have some friends coming over at the weekend.
