But I do like the benefits of technology and how they make my days run smoothly.
Ever since I set up The Clearing Space a couple of years ago, I have been using the family computer. A computer that is set up in the middle of the family/kitchen space so that we can keep an eye on children’s surfing and chatting and homework.
And with now two teenagers in the house, and one very technologically literate 8 year old, it was becoming increasingly difficult to gain access for my work! Especially as I always granted right of access for school assignments and homework tasks. (Not to mention the noise and distraction factor).
So, I have been saving and looking and dreaming about my very own laptop for it seems like ever.
I am sitting here on the couch in my family room with my feet up (sprained ankle – dont ask!) and my brand new laptop on my knees!!!
Now, even when Captain Scarlett and Georgeous Girl monopolise the family computer, I am free to work and can even move to a quiet place – a blissfully quiet place – to work unhindered.
Thank goodness for technology!
