Having lost 4 or 5 days of my life having a new hard drive put into my laptop and then having to re-install all my programs and start from scratch – and just when I think I’ve got it all under control, another little surprise rears its pretty little head, like today’s when my email decides to label all my new Inbox messages as Junk – I make the grave error of allowing automatic software installation on my mobile phone  – I thought it was a few minor updates – but oh no – Everything’s Changed and it’s like having a brand new phone and starting all over again.

My life is spiralling away: what with the bloody 6am daylight mornings waking me up and some extra late nights, and general not sleeping well, I have lost all sense of sanity.
