Just so that you know, I'm not blogging. I'm downloading my emails for the day before I get stuck into the housework that didn't get done before Christmas or holidays. The list is so long that I don't think I've got a chance. So I wouldn't be blogging. Too much to do.
While I was waiting for the computer to download the 10 emails (8 of which my computer put straight into the junkmail folder) I couldn't help reflecting that my computer is always so grindingly slow when I first turn it on. This usually results in me flicking the on switch when I get up to row, so that it has warmed up and updated the anti-virus software before I actually need to do anything.
There is nothing worse than a client ringing first thing in the morning and you can't answer the question because your computer is in that early morning grogginess. Particularly when I'm in my early morning grogginess. There's something about the both of us being in morning fog that just doesn't work.
And the chances that it's just my early morning operation of the computer that slows it down?
... Approximately None, of course. Computers are not inanimate objects - they plot against us!
