This is not being a good month to me. I have a book to write. Well, yes, that’s my job. But the deadline is approaching too rapidly for my liking. And then there’s the problem with my coffee machine. Now, Gaggia are very good indeed, and they have some magnificent engineers who will repair it as soon as possible . . . but they had a few machines go in for repair just after Christmas, and it’s two weeks now since I started relying on a cafetiere. I don’t like cafetiere coffee. So now I’m grumpy.

But life’s good generally. Last week I spoke to my phone supplier, and the next morning a nice, shiny, new Motorola Razr2 V8 or something appeared. It’s beautiful. It has a glossy bronzed surface, and it’s ever so clever. But today, when I tried to recharge it for the third time, nothing happened. It’s had some sort of fit or something which has left it heedless of any button I press.

So I picked up my cordless landline phone to ask for aid. It didn’t work either. The battery’s dead.

Which is why, after all the trials and tribulations of modern technology, it was a delight to wander off into the hills of Dartmoor and get away from it all. As you can see here!

Thank God for the moors.
