It’s not my 40th birthday for another 10 weeks or so but I got an early birthday present today. A brand spanking new laptop! Mum and Dad said I should have an extra special gift for my fortieth, and they certainly weren’t joking. Thank goodness you couldn’t see me excitedly dancing around the lounge after the postman had delivered it to my door this afternoon (and that in itself is quite an accomplishment – both the Royal Mail delivery AND my dancing!). I’ve spent most of the evening connecting it to the internet and uploading Microsoft Office and Publisher etc. I love the ease of use that can be had with a laptop and I’ll be glad to kiss my crunchy desktop computer goodbye – though I’m keeping it as a backup, I’m sure it won’t be getting much use from now on and trust me, with how slow it is, that’s a good thing.
The great thing is that I didn’t see this laptop in real time, just a pic of it online, but if I could have chosen a laptop for myself, I would have chosen this very one. It’s so well suited to me, I just love it!
Thanks Mum and Dad! You’re the best!
