I Hate Computers Sometimes

I'm angry

This post is a bit of a rant I’m afraid, but I just have to get it off my chest....If I had a pound for every question someone asked me about computers I would be rich by now. And Jamie, who is a kind soul and an absolute whiz kid with computers, would be very, very rich. Tell me then, when he has spent ages putting right all the havoc people have created by 'just downloading a cute, free (not) screensaver' onto their computers and it's writhing with virus' and Trojans, nobody seems to want to put their hands in their pockets. This excludes all and any family members & close friends, it's a rule written in blood in our family never to take money from your own kin.....

If you have a problem with you car, you take it to a garage and you pay for the service. If you didn't pay you would be in deep trouble and I'm certain he would show you the door if you turned up again. So peeps, if someone repairs you computer please treat them to either a slap up meal or even.... offer them some money you cheapskates.

Empty Nest

Well both kids are finally at university and Steve and I are on our own, free to do as we please, eat what we like, watch what we want on the TV without feeling old and fuddy duddy.... Why is it then that we are both moping around with a sad looks on our faces? It's going to take a bit of getting used to. I don't like the house, which all of a sudden feels much too big, being tidy and quiet. I went upstairs to Lonnie's bedroom and opened a few drawers, threw a few clothes around and ruffled up the bed. It looks so much better like that!!! I did the same with Jamie's room. Came down stairs and scattered a few pairs of shoes around the hall and took a couple of coats out of the cloakroom and threw them over the banister at the bottom of the stairs. Much more like the house I know and love now.
