Dependent? Me?

AnalogueMore than a month without my laptop.  And just when I was beginning to build my blog. (Also just when my family were beginning to make comments about my ‘new addiction’).

Good things:

Sat down less (lay down more, – favourite position for reading books)

Spent computer time on other things (and noticed how family are addicted to their iPads)

Talked more to people, including family – face to face

Bad things:

Wasted time at work attempting to follow old routines, – on slow computer, network and internet connections

Less frequent contact with far-away family and a stack of email to catch up on

Lost touch with new WordPress followers – have found it hard to ‘reconnect’ – and get back into the blogging habit


Life goes on without a laptop.  But I’m very glad it’s back!

  1. Sandy, Lovely to see you are back from your hiatus. Jenny & I are in Singapore & have enjoyed catching up on your blog. Keep it up.

  2. Glad your back. Must have been a real test of patience as well. You won’t lose your followers. It’s nice to see the posts come back.

    • I think you secretly like this technology 🙂 And I’ll try to write something interesting over the next few days. It’s just a bit hard to get back into it. Like anything after a long break. Glad you are still visiting! x

  3. My laptop died earlier in the year. While it was being fixed I was able to adjust the balance of my life. More reading and writing, and focusing on quality blog posts. Like you though I was glad to get my laptop back. 🙂

    • So I’m in good company! 🙂 I like your use of the word balance, – I think that is the key, and something that easily gets thrown off by the seductiveness of this technology. I’ve just been away for a week and intentionally left the laptop at home, – I read two books, took a lot of photos, and spent more time than usual talking, – but yes, again, it’s great to have it back!
