I was buying a patterned top in a charity shop today and the woman behind the counter said, yes, I can see you getting a lot of wear out of that; it's dressy but not.

I have a new laptop. I also have new laptop guilt, because I had no idea how easy it was to let a toddler break the old one. I wonder how many laptops are broken by beloved chubby hands poking and footering and, whoops! A £400 mistake. That easy. Not like mobile phones that survive endless bounces off the floor.
So, I am frantic about trying to keep the wains off this one. It sits high on a bookshelf and they stand in front of it wailing, praying, willing, 'Puter down. Puter dowwwwnnnn!' It's hard to explain why they can't have it.
I keep telling myself I should blog more. I need to get into the rhythm of it again. To get less self-conscious. To just write. At the moment I'm enjoying reading a book version of Stuart's blog. It's called 'The 'Celestial Cafe' and it just flows like a good conversation or a spring morning and makes you want to read more.
I don't think I'm even aiming for profundity. I just want to get into the habit of writing. You gotta have that for starters.

Forgive me, dear reader, for my infrequent posting. Yes, I am still torn, often wondering how much time online is too much? I've been enjoying 'The Winter of Our Disconnect' as Radio 4's book of the week.
Basically, a technology-addicted family gave up all screen time for 6 months and found themselves reconnecting in simple and rewarding ways. Here's a summary from a G2 article. Tempting, huh? Nice Man announced, 'We are not doin' that, by the way.' Hmm? Maybe at a later date, I could work up to it. In the meantime, I must get to bed!
