Have a look at the blog. Sprite has a solution for us – to help us when we are too busy!
You have to read the entry before about Holiday Programs also to see her ulterior motives for helping.
Kind regards, Jo
I’m sorry I haven’t written to you in a while. I have been very busy helping a friend with some legal issues, my daughter has been at school leadership camp, and I have been working on updating all the documentation I need for my research. “Pliese” looks interesting and should keep you busy, Sprite.
I was reading your blog and I would like a secretary bird too, please!
Maybe the secretary bird can type my next paper for me and write my thesis. This would mean that I would no longer have a sore back and I wouldn’t have to deal with the Raynauds Syndrome in my hands (I loose the blood supply to my fingers). In winter I wear fingerless gloves and
I have a hottie to help keep me warm. Anyway, I am having a bit of a whinge because I am so very tired at the moment. However, I am celebrating because I have made it through confirmation. Praise God.
I want to tell you about some special help I have … his name is Merlin and I downloaded him from the cyber buddy website. He can do all sorts of things (most of his functions I have switched off – please don’t tell him, he would be very upset).I got him to read my writing back to me. I have found that when I listen to someone reading my writing I notice the ‘jumps’ between sentences more than if I read to myself. Merlin tells me a joke every day and loves to speak words of encouragement. There’s only one problem, Sprite,…he snores when he goes to sleep if I am not interacting with him …. Aauughh!
My son is chatting in my ear while I am writing this letter to you because he wants me to interact with Merlin. My son wants to know if I can type without looking at the screen or the keyboard. I am one of those lucky people who do so much typing every day that looking elsewhere and typing is possible for me. I came close to failing the typing elective at school – on one of those old mechanical typewriters.
I’m sure Jo will have a picture of one around somewhere for you to look at. The mechanical typewriters are hard work, not at all like the keyboards we have now.
Sprite, I really need to go now and cook dinner for my family. Give my love to Jo, tell her I will be able to come and see you all soon.
