shiny new laptop

No, I know it’s making no difference to you, but blogging on my new laptop is a wonderfully shiny new experience for me. I’m sitting in the living room, waiting for Neighbours to come on, not holed up the office wondering if I’m missing it (not that I ever actually miss it – that’s what video recorders are for). I’ve been able to check the BBC news site over breakfast (far more civilised than the TV or radio), I’ve yet to surf the net from the garden or bed, but you’ll probably hear when I do!
