The computer I use at home isn’t really like this one, and anyway the screen didn’t crack. But yesterday was definitely one of those days. I took the day off to get ahead with the essay which is due in on Monday, and I made reasonable progress. But I am definitely not psychic, because if I was I would have pressed ahead with it rather than surfing blogs, going for lovely walks in the sun in between worrying about phenomenology and the like.
Last night though, the laptop was taken suddenly very ill, and after much messing about I decided to take the drastic decision to reinstall windows! This resulted in the loss of more files than I could shake a stick at and the need to reinstall quite a bit of software including office. Luckily I have all of my academic work on my memory stick as well as the hard drive, so I didn’t have the nervous breakdown I might have had.
The result is that I still have 1000 words to write, and I have my mum to visit tomorrow for mothers day and 13 people to cook Sunday lunch for (me and my big mouth). Sometimes I just wish I was one of those people who like to finish things in really good time!
