A Small Present

I was expecting to get my retirement present on Thursday but to my surprise they did it today. Fortunately I'd written a speech of sorts over the weekend, so I just about managed to stay coherent.

The main thing they gave me was a rather nice 16gb iPad which I'm assuming is the latest model - I don't actually know how to find this out from the diagnostic screen but it has a retina screen (which is lovely and clear) so I'm pretty pleased. Just charging and registering it now. At some point I think I will want to get a cover / keyboard, any recommendations that won't break the bank? And are there any must-have apps treat won't cost a packet?

The other present was a framed whole school staff photo, which I'd intended to order as a memento until I found out it cost twenty-odd quid. Fortunately I apparently mentioned it loudly enough that someone thought of buying it for me.

Anyway, the rest of the week will be a bit anticlimactic now, but it's a nice present to remember the school by, and with a bit of luck I'll eventually learn to type faster - this has taken me nearly twenty minutes!

Later: how do you get mouse-over text on an iPad? Xkcd ain't the same without it!
