Accidents will happen.....

Did anyone else love Elvis Costello? Late '70s, early '80s.... I am definately showing my age now.
No photos today and just a few words of warning. Maybe no one else is quite so clumsy, or so lacking in common sense, but just in case I shall share what I learned.
A nice comfy chair, a netbook, a cup of tea, and a clumsy person is not a good combination. In the words of the great Elvis Costello ' Accidents will happen ' It's more a question of when? rather than if. My poor little netbook is now hopefully drying out with no lasting damage. My computer repair man is coming round tomorrow and I have been told DO NOT TRY TO SWITCH IT ON.  Apparently any moisture left inside may short circuit something vital and could totally kill my hard drive. I wish I had known this before I tried to switch it on last night.
On the plus side... I don't have sugar in my tea because it acts as a conductor and can make the damage worse than it already is.
I have now out stayed my welcome on my daughter's netbook so bye for now and hope to resume normal blogging very soon.

Oh no!

We've knocked over countless drinks (my other half is particularly adept at this) but so far (touching wood) nothing electrical has been in the way. It's just a matter of time!

Hope your IT guy can resuscitate your netbook.

Oh dear.... and thanks for the warning. I'm a clumsy person, too.

Glad to see you're back online, Fiona!

I'm sat here in a comfy chair with my laptop and a cup of tea and just remembering to be careful ... !!
