The New Toy

This is a picture of my new toy.  I say 'my'.  Really, Dh's accountant told him he had to spend some money before the end of the financial year.  So really, it probably belongs to 'the business'.  I don't know how it all works and quite frankly I don't care.  Because right now I'm tapping away on a new laptop replete with academic software.  I have Publisher on a laptop...finally!  Woohoo!

I have yet to move all my Uni and work files over from the old laptop, but you know, these things can't be done all in one day.  My one disappointment?  No numeric keypad to the right of the alphabetic keypad.  But you can't have everything right?  I have Publisher!  Oh, wait.  I said that already, didn't I?  It's one of those things ~ you don't realise  how much you use something until it's not right at your fingertips.

So...my Uni semester starts in two weeks and by then I will have this baby all ready with all my favourite files and bookmarks transferred over.

When we were overseas, I coudn't remember my bank account sign in because there was no numeric pad on Kirby's laptop! It took me about 20 goes to remember the numbers, tapping away on an imaginary numeric pad on the table. I would love a laptop of my own...

LOL...too late Rel. It's already well and truly mine and I squint warily when Dh tries to have a hands-on look. Poor man.
