It's Tuesday evening so it's nice to know my working week is over!
In spite of the busy schedule I find I am unwanted for the rest of the week, I did offer but was rejected, and so I have nothing to do but to enjoy myself and watch others suffer, what joy!
Today we were quite busy as not only did we have the Christmas browsers, the exhibition visitors and a school in for Victorian teaching, all 80 of them, and then we had various other things to keep us busy such as making tea.
One task was to proofread a draft of the next 'What's On' brochure, wisely as many people as possible do this, and we two sitting in the front delighted to add red ink to the pages. This made us aware just how easy it is to make mistakes while spelling, especially when the wee red line underneath speaks American rather than English! We found spelling mistakes and one or two other things not quite right made when attempting to do several things at once, as is the normal way in a busy environment. Last time out the proofreading was rushed and several unfortunate occurrences led to grumbling. We have avoided some by our efforts unless we too have made mistakes.
I then went to Tesco!
Sometimes good ideas can be a pain. A wee while back a French judge insisted that all sites in Europe carry a warning that a 'cookie' will be placed on the PC of the viewer. This was not news to many of us but it is clear now as in Europe every new site you enter a warning of some sort from the host indicates a 'cookie' and asks if you accept this or not. A good idea but a pest especially when the laptop has just been cleaned using those anti malware, anti virus or just emptying the cache as everything has to be put back in and the warning comes up on EVERY blog you read! A good idea but sometimes it is annoying.
If only the french judge could deal with spam instead!
