Do you need a tea kettle? I know where I can get my hands on a really good one. Chocolate could be included!
Thanks, dear Linda! Actually, you know what? My kettle is WORKING again?!?! I put it out but my cleaning lady (sorry to make anyone jealous ... it is all in the name of productivity and boosting the local economy
) rescued it and took it to the repair shop ... by which stage some electrical connection had already fixed itself! How embarrassing
but it's lovely to have it back again.
As for the Chinese computer, yep, lots of stuff is made here, but western computers usually have western software, whereas ones here have Chinese software. And they're not always compatible. I often run into minor problems with formatting with FW - have to be very careful that the internet thingo is set to 'western European windows' - most of the time it is on 'simplified Chinese'.
