Rita casts off with her first blog post

I’m sitting in my neighbour Nick’s front room.  He’s an IT whizz and a chance – and slightly half-hearted comment from me last week – along the lines of, “You know you offered to help me set up a blog?  Are you still up for that?  If so, how about some time in February?”, was met with, “Yep, let’s do it now.  In fact I’ve already started on it.”   I wasn’t expecting such a rapid response, reckoning I’d probably waste most of 2015 waffling on about starting a blog, knowing it’d probably never happen.  And so, here I am, a couple of days later, knuckling down to what seems like an awful lot of technical stuff – he’s linking me to Facebook and Twitter too.  How will I assimilate all this information, being a fluffy technophobe?  Lots of practice, like with most things.

Nick’s beautiful Vizsla, Kyla, is licking my hand as I type this.
