Of Magic Carpets and Backing Tracks

You may remember that we had new carpets arriving on Wednesday. Well, by the time I got home I found that the one for the hall had magically laid itself! This was great news for me, as our hall is a nightmare shape, having a large recess under the stairs where my computer and the dog's bed is. But there is more! I got home after my wargames meeting last night (playing a jolly entertaining game of Roman Chariot Racing) to find that the living room carpet had done itself too! Wowee, this was even better as our living room is home to our rather substantial book collection, in addition to the usual stuff. I am now wondering if the kitchen/diner will sort itself out today! Amazing stuff this carpet! Wish I knew about it years ago!

Changing the subject completely, my wife must have upped her workout regime, as she has been really tired the last couple of days.

Meanwhile, in odd breaks over the last few days I have managed to have a play with a program that is on an eMac in the office. It is called Garage Band and I have used it to put together a couple of simple drum and bass backing tracks so I can play guitar along with them. I had a quick go with one this morning and it really works well. Might try adding in a bit of keyboard or rhythm guitar when I get the time. Wonder if anyone would notice if the eMac disappeared for the summer...

You are a lucky man to have such an amazing wife. (I'm sure I didn't need to tell YOU that.)
