Written on my NEW computer

The guy who delivered my computer said he couldn't deliver it before 10.00- and he was a little early- so we stood on the drive chatting while the minutes scrolled by. It was a pleasant chat. He said he'd be going home to watch F1, I said I'd be settling down with the tennis. Then, because conversation had lapsed I told him how my son-in-law was doing electrics on an outdoor site in Middlesborough. Well, I found it interesting.

Ailz set the machine up. I could probably have managed myself- because I'm fairly dogged- but it would have taken much longer. Now Ailz is having problems expunging me from her computer and I'm being asked for passwords and having to reset them because I'm told they're incorrect (even though they're not.)

No underdogs in the men's final, so I'll be cheering for Rafa. It's sad that Djokovic is so unlikeable. I was on the phone to my sister when D was playing Tsitsipas. She said Tsitsipas looks like Jesus on the cross and I said Novak looks like the guy who nailed him there.
