Yesterday I had to do some financial stuff for husband, on his computer, both of which I dislike intensely. His computer is slow, his desk is a mess (and I hate working in a mess) and the chair is uncomfortable and gives me backache. I find sorting out financial stuff a strain anyway, more so the older I get, it just overloads my brain, especially if the stuff isn't straightforward, which this certainly wasn't. By lunchtime, when I'd done as much as I could, I had a stonking headache and had to go and lie down for an hour, the headache persisted all afternoon, though did ease up a bit in the evening.
The new (to me) tablet which husband's daughter very kindly sent me to replace my Amazon Fire, which is limited in what it can do, has been giving me a few problems too. Some of which I admit were driver error.... technology and me aren't really compatible! I'd put all my favourites on the thing, then couldn't work out how to access them - I've done it now, but it seems a long winded way of getting to them, unlike the simple to use Fire...I expect there's an easier way, I just haven't worked it out yet. Also, the internet kept dropping out on the tablet yesterday afternoon...at first I thought it was due to the weather, which does tend to play havoc with our broadband. However, it transpired that it wasn't affecting husband's desktop or my phone, they were both still working fine, so the problem seems to be just with the new tablet. Or me! I gave up with it in the end, it was just adding to my headache.
I'm typing this blog post on it now, it seems alright at the moment, fingers crossed.
The other day when we did the top up shop, I bought a small cooked chicken. I stripped the meat off, saving some for Betty, and made two chicken and ham cottage pies, using up some leftover gammon. The topping was mashed ordinary and sweet potatoes. We had one last night, the other went in the freezer, I boiled up the bones with a bit of chopped veg for stock and froze that too. So one small £3 chicken made two dinners for us, three chicken dinners for Betty and a tub of stock for a future soup.
I slept very badly last night, unsurprisingly, and feel like death warmed up this morning. So I won't be doing much today.
