I awoke, early, and rested my tired eyes further listening to liars, the devious and the self seeking on the wireless telling us how wonderful the world is under their government, opinions, ideas and, er, art!

Still no help. Gulp! I turned it off and waited longer, and once again (Hooray) it sprang, slowly, to life and allowed me my life back. It was at this point I decided I must get that old PC fixed! So now the laptop has served me through the day I make plans for rushing into town tomorrow and visiting PC World. I will find what I need there and get to work immediately, sort off. This is indeed an emergency and nothing, absolutely nothing, will hold me back!
Late this afternoon an emergency call from the museum means I must go in at ten a.m. tomorrow morning, just when I should be on my bus. Volunteers, you canny trust them! At least I can now consider what I am doing on the broken PC properly rather than rush off and buy what looks the right thing.
My life is so exciting, don't you think.....?
