Apart from the usual pile of washing and ironing, at this time of year it's the big leaf clean up operation which has been keeping us busy for the last few days. Fortunately the ground wasn't too wet, so much of the work could be done with the big mower; setting the blades high, it sucks up the leaves pretty efficiently.
When not out in the garden, I've been wrestling with a new PC base unit I picked up whilst in UK. My plan was to transfer the drives over from my previous unit and carry on .... but the hardware seems to have other ideas! The behaviour is very strange. At boot, the mother board only finds the system, which is on an SSD, about 25% of the time - the rest of the time it says no operating system is present. If it does find it, then all is fine. I've not got to the bottom of this strange behaviour yet, but it has been wasting a lot of my time trying to sort it out, so I hope a solution can be found soon!
It was cold and frosty yesterday morning, so I took the opportunity to put the contents of the freezer outside and defrost - it hadn't been done for two years so it was quite a task. By contrast, this morning is 6c and there's a fine mist in the air - wintery and not very pleasant to be honest.
