I'd been out to the shops and returned to notice increased bird activity in the garden. I think (with the rain we've had today) the birds must have been finding plenty of food in all the garden shrubs.
I was gazing out at the birds when this Blue Tit flew onto the gas boiler's external vent! I don't know what it found there but something held its interest.!
Well I seem to have solved my computer problem today. Woo hoo. I was going to ring an IT guru friend of mine next week to pick his brains and throw myself on his mercy but, I'm delighted to say, that's now not necessary.
My problem was that when "clicking" on any item whether on the net or the PC, I had to click several times before there was any reaction. The keyboard shortcuts were working fine so it wasn't anything to do with the "area" I'd chosen! All this happened immediately after Virginmedia had installed broadband etc. last week, so, I was attributing the problem to something connected with that. I was then talking to a friend on the phone who asked if it could be something wrong with the mouse
Now this got me thinking. I hate wires and cables and therefore I have a cableless mouse. The mouse talks to a "pod" which, in turn, in connected to the PC. What I hadn't realised was that the "pod" (during all the cable removing and attaching for the Broadband isntallation) had slipped down and was partially trapped behind desk.
So...... (I'm sure you've all worked it out already!) when I returned said "pod" to the correct position, Little Mouse having given a great whoop of joy on bening reunited with its pod, immediately sprang into action and enjoyed clicking responsively around the screen at a fair old lick almost, I may add, clapping it's tiny paws with glee. Thanks to this I'm now able to enjoy the vastly increased speed provided by cable broadband! SORTED!! (One day I will live this down!)
