The house is quiet, the young folk are away to their good warm work.  I am sitting up in bed with Tobias.

Henry seems to have completed his mornings work and all I need to do is make the pancake batter for this evening.  Yesterday passed in a hazy blur.  I spent the day recovering from a very full and busy few days,I re-lived in my mind all the conversations from the weekend and lost count of the number of new friends I made.  If I am quiet, worry not I might be exploring new blogs.

I also need to develop my relationship with Tobias, he needs to know that I will be in charge….!  We are getting to know each other slowly.  A tender touch is all he needs!  Like all toyboys he has many little quirks and we need to iron them out to suit me if he is to be my constant companion.

So who is Tobias?

Why, Tobias is my new laptop.

When George adds all my information and programmes from my PC there will be no holding me back. At the moment I am finding my way with Chrome (is that what you call it?) and it is a little different to Firefox.  I don’t miss the mouse so far and I enjoy the warmth for my hovering cold hands.  A new barstool for my kitchen is now top of my list and in the winter months I may never leave the kitchen!

When the summer comes I am looking forward to sitting outside in the garden and working away with Tobias.

Do you think I can teach him to cut the grass?

    Good luck with Tobias, he looked lovely. Did you bring him to Cork too?
    Laptops can do a lot of things…I’m not sure that cutting the grass is one of them though 😆

    I did indeed bring Tobias to Cork and used the wifi in the room to write my morning after the night before post. It was very short. I need to work at it.

    Hi Bock, It was great to finally meet you. I have lost count of all the people I talked to.

    Roll on next year.

    I notice he doesn’t sit demurely….

    We have a laptop…well, I have a laptop which I use because the others are not up and running….no need to mow the lawn …no lawn!

    Perhaps Tobias can be taught to remotely control a lawn mower then he need not be away from you except for the obvious times.

    I still can’t get used to the keyboard on laptops, I like the elevated keys . You can add a mouse if you prefer. We’ve got two laptops in our house and one word of warning . .watch the batteries! Have fun.

    @Magpie – Mowing the lawn is exercise so I cannot complain. I think when I get home to my own space I will really get used to Tobias.

    @Baino – I like the laptop keyboard more than I thought I would. The fact that it is warm is a bonus for my extremely cold hands! ;D
    I will be able to use my keyboard & mouse if desired.
