In with the new!
Jon is the technically minded one - so on Monday we tootled over to Curry's or is it now PC World - whoever - I think they are all the same now - we went there and after a relatively short time, talking to the geek and looking along the shelves we purchased this one.
It wasn't as expensive as the rest but I didn't need the functions which a lot were offering. The geek asked me if I do much online gaming - did I need a console etc etc (do I look as though I do?) and when we said "No" he suggested this one together with a security and office package - and a cordless mouse and case, oh and a flash drive.
Arriving home I went through the necessary procedure to start up, link up and get online and here I am!
It is a pleasure to use and now I realise how bad the previous one was.
Similar thing happened in Homebase. I opened the door to an integrated fridge and was totally blown away! It was the basic model too - but nevertheless I was totally awestruck.
Our current fridge is an integrated one too, but it is old and in a serious state of disrepair. A few of the door shelves have broken as have the interior shelves/racks too. It is under the worktop - so not the most accessible. I can hardly wait for the new one to arrive!
It just goes to show how I have simply not noticed how things have deteriorated around me and how we have put up with it all!
