Yes, Things Happen In Threes!

Yesterday I had work cancelled due to the fact there was no one to actually run the clinic ... pretty good reason I suppose!  Although it was annoying to lose the 3 hours pay, I decided that the time off would be good for me health wise.

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!

#3

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!
