Then I did something I'd never had the nerve to do before, to bid for something on ebay. I'd never have managed any of it without masses of help from son Marius - especially as it was a fair bit of money. I'd seen a clock in an antique shop which inspired us to buy an old Dutch clock to go on our old-style Dutch barge, then saw this one on ebay and fell for it. I bid less than the one in the shop, but paid a lot less, even with postage from Germany - I don't understand how it works, but I like it! The clock pic is here, then a sunset from February, if they'll load via my dingly dongle! This all dates back to mid-early Feb.
