Computing For and Against

I am in my usual spot sat at my computer, I realise that I spend more time in this little space than anywhere else. Its cosy it’s absorbing and at times very rewarding.
Then on the other hand it stops me from doing other things, I walk out of here and look round at the many things I started before I just popped in to check my emails for a few minutes. I also lose all track of time, so am inclined to find I am very hungry and haven’t planned what I want to eat.
I enjoy sorting through my photographs and I have even entered some in competitions, well that’s a plus I would say.
Then I look up and see the room is full it’s like trying to fit a pint into a half pint pot, I don’t even have the consolation of saying I know where everything is because of my constant reorganizing I have no idea.
But and it is a big but does it really matter that much, I suppose the eating is something to be tackled but as for the rest I am not interfering with anyone else and besides that I have just found a half bar of chocolate in the fridge and very tasty it is too.
My no 1 daughter is home next weekend so I had better make sure she can get in, (sorry T I will try and give you a space)
Parky has been remarkably quiet recently, which is a big bonus I was beginning to think I was going backwards. I am driving again which makes it much easier for me and also my family and friends. I don’t have the same confidence that I used to have and am aware of my driving skills, if I feel I am having an off day I don’t drive.
Perhaps if everyone did the same it would reduce accidents who knows I am probably a much safer driver as I know my limitations.

Cards and Domino’s

The night before last I babysat three children and one 90 year old. I thought it would be easier to have the grandchildren with me while doing a stint looking after my Mum.
The fact that I managed to cope with both young and old has a lot to do with my eldest granddaughter, she was always nannies treasure when little and still is. She not only helped with her young brother and sister but was excellent with her great granny.
I thank her for taking care of her Nanny as well, all three of my grandchildren ask me if I have taken my tablets and the little one at four years old likes to get me a drink of water to take them with. I may be a bit biased but I think they are going to grow into very special people.
I am teaching them how to play cards and domino’s which takes me back to my own grandmother who taught me when I was a child. I enjoy their company and love to see how they cope with winning or losing. When the two youngest went to bed it was time for a few different games of dominos. Maltese cross, and Matador, that certainly gets the brain going. I never let them win but love to see the look on their faces when they work out how to play well enough to beat me.
I have started to drive again as I am not now falling asleep at the drop of a hat, which was caused by the increase of pills. I am pleased that I am driving again but a bit miffed that my pills had to go back up, who knows if I can stay stress free maybe they can come down again.
