I'm back! I'm not sure anyone really noticed I'd gone as I'm a sporadic blogger at the best of times, but this time the blog was abandoned through necessity, not choice.
My mouse broke, so I had to resort to using the stupid Touchpad, which is beyond fiddly and which I totally lack the patience to operate. Therefore I've only been on the laptop for the bare minimum of stuff, which has pretty much been nothing really, although I've been reading blogs - not commenting much though, I can never get the stupid Touchpad to click on the right bit.
Anyway, the conclusion to this mundane story is that my boyfriend took home a mouse from his work that wasn't in use. It didn't work either. I vowed I wasn't touching the laptop again until I bought a new mouse, which is no mean feat considering not a single shop in this town sells one, so I was going to have to order online then wait until it arrived. Last night, my boyfriend needed to go on the laptop - I came into the room to see him happily scrolling away with the mouse he'd brought from work.
Me: I plugged it in properly!
Him: I know.
Me: So why didn't it work?
Him: It hates you.
And I really thought it did, although its working for me today so far, so I'm back online...for now at least...
