New Toy

I promise that the next instalment of Tackling The Mental Health Minefield will be published later today. My excuse for not having finished writing it is that I decided to buy myself a new laptop yesterday evening, so after having ordered it (and a few other goodies) from that well-known computer store that you find on most retail parks today I have been to collect it this morning.

Having arrived home less than an hour ago I am now trying it out for the first time. I have loaded Firefox which I prefer to use as my browser, found my blog, and I'm writing this quick post on my new toy before getting myself some lunch and then sitting down to complete Part 2. Once that is published I will spend some time getting familiar with my new toy and with Windows 7.

Always good to treat yourself. My laptop comes from work so I don't need a new one, but, being a fan of Mont Blanc pens, and having been paid and having a significant amount over from last month's pay with most of the Christmas shopping done, I'm considering treating myself to one as a reward for, hopefully, getting through the semester. Is it very bad of me?

No, I don't think it's bad of you. I am a great believer in giving yourself treats if there is no-one else to give them to you. The new laptop was bought because I hadn't spent much money over the last seven weeks, and I needed something to cheer me up.

An increase in visitors to the blog and a new laptop... wonderful! :) I am jealous I want windows 7!
