My enforced break from all things computer seem to be taking their toll on my ability to string a sentance together on my blog. It has now been over a week since computer and therefore internet access was easy due to the terminal break down of my laptop and also to the fact that any access to the computer is meant to be restricted to writing my dissertation. Luckily no writers block there, though I need to get my finger out if it is to be done on time (7600 words and another at least 7500 to go and maybe more).
Usually if I am struggling to think of something to write about I just read other people’s blogs and websites and something strikes a cord and away I go. This is not something that can be done in 5 minutes flat though, and really I haven’t had the opportunity or time for any aimless (or aimfull if that were a word) surfing. I am now ready to buy a new laptop but the wish to buy the right one at the right price is kind of slowing down the decision making process. Maybe I should just go and get one and be done with it, but well £450-500 is a lot of money (about what I plan to spend) and I don’t really want to make a mistake on this one.
Why are teenage boys so messy? That is today’s question. I am currently sitting surrounded by school books and papers, other peices of paper which appear to have varying levels of importance, drinks cans, an over flowing bin, clean clothes which he hasn’t yet put away and may not be clean for too much longer. Having said that, I was reasonably messy myself, but in a much cleaner way I am sure. This room is practically a health hazzard and if I was any kind of mother I would get my marigolds out now and start cleaning. Instead I think I will write a thousand words or so on my dissertation and keep my eyes to the front and on the screen.
So much for writers block – there is always something to get you going isn’t there?
