You get what you pay for I suppose. And I paid for a cheap refurbished Palm Zire 71. Being half the price of a new one, I should have expected worse, but it actually was in very good nick.
Unfortunately I’ve had to return it for replacement. It was advertised in excellent refurbished condition, working as per factory spec. The reality was that the camera button worked only intermittently, and hotsync occasionally required a firm hand holding the unit down onto the cradle. Still, for the price I’m happy to wait a few days for a working replacement. So yeah, expect no phlog updates for a while.
The boy is going really well. 8 weeks tomorrow, and (as much as I hate to drag out all the parenting cliches), it’s amazing how much he has grown. He now fills out the little carseat/capsule thing, and he is a reasonable hefty thing to carry instead of a little fragile thing.
Smiles are coming thick and fast, along with the occasional giggle. He is certainly amused by the simpler things in life. Like pooing.
We can pretty much time his motions by his emotions, and visa-versa now I think about it. A full tummy is definitely something to be dealt with in a firm, no-nonsense manner. He wakes up, eats, stares around sternly, then goes back to sleep. At some stage after a few hours of solemnity, he will wake screaming about ‘this alien in my pants’. Once the alien is dealt to, life is all fluffy, bouncing bunnies and smiling sunflowers. Smiles, giggles, silly Elvis smirks all over the show.
Strange little man.
