I Have the Best Life Partner Ever
She brought back loads of presents (I'm not worthy), I got a t-shirt dyed with colours that come from coffee beans, EldestOne got a T-shirt whose colours come from volcanic ash and the two others got "Angry Birds" hats.
The outstanding present was an "iHelicopter" a toy remote control helicopter you can run from your iPad, iPad or iPhone. MiddleOne, who is slowly building a remote control plane, is having great fun. But everyone else is getting a go too. I'm very good at smashing it into the ceiling.
I also got an Olympus SZ-14. It has a fantastic 24x optical zoom, selectable ASA ratings, and a whole bunch of other useful features. The only thing that it lacks is user selectable shutter speeds. Still, this will go into my bushwalking/astrophotography reasonably priced cameras group. Should be great for lunar eclipses and twilight Venus.
