I then decided that for some of that spare morning I would start to write some Christmas letters as there always seem to be no real time. I have a few friends I just contact at Christmas, and have inherited some of Mum & Dad's friends as well. So, great, my day had a plan!
I turned on the PC ... and, needn't have bothered! Yes the intermittant problems had added together to leave me with a useless box of electronic bits! Oh well, annoying, and expensive, but something I had been semi expecting! So, I picked up the car keys to drive to the shop ... to find that the battery had gone in the car-key, so had no alarm/automatic locking. So, #2
Anyway I spent yesterday beginning to set up the new pc, and continued this morning. I wrote a letter to USA, and one to Australia ... only to find that my printer has also died!
So, frustrating ... although, at least I have been off work so I can get the things repaired/replaced. Although off work means no money, so thanks Mum & Dad for the new computer.
Oh well .. off printer shopping later.
Hope eveyone else is having a better day than me!
