Today, as they say in football, was a day of two halves.
Due to internal politics and technical problems the morning was less than fun, in fact it had me doubled in pain during a 40 minute walk to work off stress. But I won't go into details, they are both too raw still and it'll just be a rant (I just tried to do it once and ended up deleting the whole post as it got too long and way. way too much of a rant)
I was not happy.
But (always good to use after a phrase like 'I was not happy'), it did pick up. We are looking into a new computer for home. Mrs Stace is using my old laptop and it's starting to get a little long in the tooth, it takes too long to do certain tasks, and the battery is totally dead - if you unplug it it does instantly.
So I am going to do a clean install on mine and pass it on to her, and replace it with a DTR to last another 5 years. Sony is just about to release a new line of laptops using the latest and greatest chips from Intel, with a huge amount of processing power, lots of memory and a fast disk it should be lovely to code on (and to process photo's). We put the order in today, and should be amongst the first to get it when it's released in a couple of weeks. Fingers crossed :)
And then this afternoon, in the glorious sunshine, we went for our office run across the country park near the office. 50mins, 500cals and 27g fat later I was quite happy again. There were 5 of us there, me and another girl run ahead, a couple of girls running a little slower and the guy who organises it (and can run us all into the ground - I swear he didn't even break a sweat!) running between the two.
A nice drive in the evening sun, some spinach and pesto past and I'm done...
And now that this is written, I'm off to bed to carry on with 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' - it's just getting interesting!
