The kids have driven me mad tonight. Actually all day. It started as soon as they opened their little eyes this morning and continued when I collected them from school. Fighting, fritching, arguing. So, I thought, I'll get tea done early, which I achieved. Pots done, baths done, school books read, one in bed for 7 and one shortly after at 7.30.
aaaaahhhh, I thought. Bliss. I'll switch on my laptop and have a lovely couple of hours catching up on the bits and pieces I've wanted to do for a couple of weeks. Wrong!
Technology problems. Arrrghhh! Laptop I hate you. It's decides to get all temperamental and not log on. I know it's been neglected for a few days and not switched on but is there any need to start sulking with me. After several re-starts and clicks to repair the problems finally an hour and a half later it's working. Yeah!
I have to say though I am quite proud of myself for fixing the problems. A little while back I would have gone into melt down and started desperately phoning round my in-house technology people (haha, you know who you are) but I fixed it all on my own.
And that just about sums up my day.
