Nearly got caught out. My computer rang alarm bells telling me I had a virus and to download My PC Repair 2018. It looked genuine but, when I clicked to download it, Firefox blocked the site. Had I not been using Firefox, I could have been in trouble.

Last night …. Fish and chips from the shop. More than enough chips for one meal so had a couple of chip butties for lunch today.

Tonight … Chinese Lemon Chicken takeaway and rice. Usually there is more than enough for one meal so will have the rest tomorrow night.
