zen and the art of broadbeans

I am not a 'techno-scaredycat' in fact I openly embrace technology with both arms....
but today....let's just say that my patience is being put to the test in a very large
way- the reason, I have just entered into a fairly heated exchange with my 'time
machine'......he's actually arguing with me (nice programming apple people)
"ooo you haven't backed up for one hundred and seventy days, your such a naughty 
girl, I'm not totally sure that you have enough space for this latest backup......
I suggest you go away for a bit and think about your over casual attitude young lady while
I decide if I really want to perform your latest and I'm telling your iphone!"
-well it went something like that-
yesterday saw Moomin and I mooching around the Riverside gallery in Bovey (mostly for tea drinking purposes but also to look at the shiny, pretty things)- I was looking at a vase 
(I think) when I heard the yell "oooooooooloookatthat!" coming from the gallery's
direction- I rushed over to find Moomin gazing with love pasted all over her face as she 
stared at this ordinary coat....oh no...A RED AND ORANGE FELT COAT!
"I must have it" I said in a clinical and matter of fact way, we then bowed our heads in the 
customary manner to review the price...this caused both Moomin and myself to stand
bolt upright and take one step back at the same time..."correction I really want it but
oh no...three thousand pounds" cue the pout- so I decided to take a photo to send
to my friend who makes felt things ", don't want to attract attention" I
said raising the camera discreetly CLICK......FOOOSH- actually flash...on, attention
most definitely attracted- "that's done it" whispered Moomin "we're for it now"
"why's that" I replied "are we gonna get arrested by the 'craft police'
with that, we casually strolled out of the exit while the lady with the blue rinse gave me
(the one with the purple rinse) a really hard stare-  
talking of Moomin, I recently introduced her to the delights of the Mighty Boosh-
I wasn't sure if it would raise a smirk but at one point there was herbal tea coming
out of her nose job here is done-
finally, something a bit random- I recently mentioned to one of my bonkers relatives that I was in the middle of changing my broadband for faster download speeds....."oo, it
possible to download broadbeans on the internet?" came the reply....
oh I hope it's not catching!
