Grrr.. bah humbug. last night my computer started to behave rather oddly; as soon as it was running it would be using 100% of the processor power and nothing would work. Somehow i felt it might be prudent to leave it doing a virus scan overnight and came down at some point to discover 185 viruses on the system. Hm. I thought. Odd really, given the email protection is switched on and my scanner keeps telling me things are being removed. Twaddled endlessly with it only to discover that NOTHING in the instructions in fact made any sense and there didn’t appear to be any place i could get rid of said 185 viruses. Sulked some more than stormed out and spent £40 on Norton, which has spent all day running and has found a further 5 viruses, of which 2 were uncleanable and so it killed them. And taa-daa!!!! i have a running computer again. Grrrr bah humbug. Last time i USE those other people – so glad that when i got Max’s version last night i only signed up for the free trial for him. I’ve got a nasty feeling it might have had something to do with my IM programme – i got a couple of firewall alerts last week tellnig me that it was trying to send emails, which seemed odd and it had started to load very slowly too. So beware….
Anyway, the 6 hours of computerless time have been useful; i’ve managed to sort most of my business paperwork into order so geting my accounts done should now be a sinch (lol…).
Kids have amused themselves today although we have started a Sylavannian Families Magazine project to make hot air balloons – so its been papier mache at 50 paces all day. I’ve even put a layer on for them this evening, i’m too nice!
Amelie was horribly poorly all night; woke at midnight coughing on every breath and wouldn’t you know it, her inhaler ran out. Job 456 last week was to get repeat prescriptions.. i only made it to job 455 :~( So i sat up with her in my arms all night, coughing away (breathing okay i hasten to add, just coughing a lot too) while she dozed and i rubbed cream into her very itchy body. Poor wee girl :~( Its a rotten thing, it really is. nice pharmacist gave me emergency supplies today till i can get to the doctor for a repeat prescription. (Made me laugh actually, you can almost bet my mum taught him! DEFINITE accent i recognise!)
And that is it i’m afraid – no educational input at all….. will they make it do you think? Oh well, i did read the Story of St Alban and The Doves Tale (BOTH made me cry!)
