Art Nouveau door, Antwerp, Belgium.
My friend Di and her clever husband Gert have done a wonderful thing for me. For eight years, I've had to go to London to buy laptops with English keyboards, as well as obscure computer or camera gear. Not anymore! Thanks to Di and Gert, I was alerted to Pixmania - which - wonder of wonders - delivers computers with English keyboards within France and Belgium!
My first purchase was a little blue netbook, which arrived today. Except for one puzzling quirk with the keyboard - resolved, after Gert suggested a simple solution - it's terrific! Petite and perfect for travel or gadding about town. Best of all, the keyboard is wide enough to type easily. Can you tell I'm already envisoning journeys, with the netbook stashed in my correspondent's bag?
Thank you, Di and Gert! If you haven't already, check out Di's website, Woman Wandering. Did I mention she's an extremely-talented photographer??!!
At midnight Paris time, I'll draw names in the giveaway celebrating my three years of blogging. Check back Wednesday for news about the prize winners.
