It’s been an expensive week for me. My laptop, which had survived many overseas trips, adventures and stories, finally decided to give up. After three hours of me trying to restart it and getting nothing but a flashing icon I knew that I had to shell out for a new computer. So I am typing this from my (refurbished) new MacBook Pro. I almost went back to Windows but, for what I wanted, the prices were very similar. My new laptop arrived on Thursday and, although I hate parting with money, it has been well spent.
