Today I am thrilled!
After months of battling with a dying laptop and believing all had come to an end, I got my new one.
Okay - so it's not as nice as the last one, but I couldn't afford exactly what I wanted (limit from insurance), and the keyboard is not as nice as the last one and it's really not even the brand I wanted, and, and.... While I was going on about the nitty gritty things that I would have liked/not liked, Middle Child piped up, "Yeah, Ma. You're really suffering with that new laptop." I shut my mouth very quickly, realising how very ungrateful I must sound.
But, I am chuffed. Really, really chuffed. And so what if it isn't the specific one I would have liked and all the rest... It works, I don't have to use my iPhone for everything and I can continue with my writing that has had to rely on pen and paper (who would have thought!), brief notes on my phone and rushed scribbles on the back of receipts.
All is well in the world today.
The sun was out, I took a walk with my sister and we enjoyed sweet nectarines in the sun.
Yip, all is well in the world.
