On Friday our computer exploded with a very big bang and a mighty smelly billow of smoke and it is no more. It gave Jemimah and me a terrible fright, and made my Beloved fairly grumpy.
I want you to know that life is not very peaceful in our Peaceful Home without our computer. MEP maths done on the little laptop screen is not fun, and we do not like singing folksongs without our backing band. Our iPod lies silent and desolate. School today took a very, very long time.
I do not like not being able to upload the photos from this weekend to show to you all. Jemimah's Dance Concert photos are beautiful, and I want you all to ooh and ah over the no-knead bread that I've baked. I have even mastered the Ripple. Finally. Maybe that has something to do with less time spent on the computer, but if so, you did not hear that from me. There is nothing good to come from this state of affairs. Nothing at all. Big Bangs are never, ever good news, y'hear? Never!
Shall I go on? I have no email. I have no Facebook. I have no Twitter. I cannot read your blogs, and I should not really be writing my own whilst I am being paid to do other more meaningful (to some) worky type things. I feel bereft of all human comfort and support.
I know that I lived a full and fulfilling life before I was connected to cyberspace. I am sure that I was even happy for some of that time, but that was all a very long time ago. So long, that I can't really remember it.
And now I am not happy, Jan.
Not happy at all.
The photo above is of some scones that Jemimah made at Christmas time. I do not know why it is on my work computer, but it is, and I think it brightens up this particularly dismal post just a tad. There is a particularly nice photo of my darling Mum and Dad as well, which makes me a little bit happy. Well, it makes me smile at any rate.
Nothing makes me happy today.
