I went to a lecture about Gaudí this morning, then came home to feed the animals, including myself, and headed off to Norwich, with credit card burning a hole in my pocket. I was determined, darlings.
It was raining, as it seems to have done more often than not this year, so I went to park at one of the shopping malls and stayed there. First, I headed for the Apple Store and I bought myself a lovely shiny new iMac.
One gets just the right amount of choice. I knew I wanted a Mac, then there are two sizes and three specifications, six options in all. I knew I wanted the smaller size, so then it was what I was willing to pay and how shiny I wanted the screen to be, largely. I still have to transfer over whole lots of stuff, so at present I’ve two iMacs to go with the two iPads and, sad to say, two iPhones, though one of them sits there unusably.
I also bought new scanties, darlings, because I bought no new underwear at all last year and it only looks good for so long, a coat and a jumper. I was all shopped out by then, though I do badly need shoes. Last year, as I said, was a non-event in shopping terms, apart from the outfit that the Sage and I bought together for Ronan and Dora’s wedding.
I’ve got school stuff on again in the morning, and spent some time reading relevant papers this afternoon, though there are more to go through first thing. Actually, there are three meetings back to back, starting at 11.30, so I have to get myself sorted out. I’m not entirely sure what one of them is about, come to that, and will have to trawl through emails to find out. Sooner I get this computer sorted out the better. Though having a wireless keyboard is jolly nice. And it’s so slender and light – the computer, that is. Hard to know where they put the innards, really.
