I've had a Really Good Day in that I've got a lot done. Whilst I was mowing a friend's grass as part of the 'I like to feel useful' bit of my life I had a flash of inspiration as to why Pat's computer might have gone on a go-slow. As I had recently re-formatted the hard drive and re-installed all the software the latest irritation was most unwelcome. It was also driving Pat mad. The flash of inspiration was to wonder whether the wireless keyboard was the problem and not the computer's operating system at all. So this afternoon I changed it for one of mine and, so far, it seems that all is now ok. I really really hope so!
This evening I've had to open up my Windows laptop and my Windows Notebook to retrieve some information. I've spent a great deal of the last couple of hours waiting whilst they update, switch on and off and generally waste my time.
So this evening I am thankful for two things.
I am thankful that the time I have to spend mucking around with my computer problems is, for the moment at least, non-existent because I am using a Mac.
And the second thing? I fell this afternoon - it was all over in less than a second. As I stood up and realised that my ankle had gone over and I'd actually fallen flat on my front the only damage was some slight residual pain and a few grazes on my hands and knee. So I am exceptionally thankful that my fall did not result in any breaks or sprains.
Yes. It's been a Good Day. And there's still some cheese and perhaps a glass of wine to come - it's not midnight yet!
