So, I’m back! It has been a good break, with much laziness, a bit of walking, not nearly enough sleeping (insomnia does not take a holiday. Why is this??) and several very silly and therefore enjoyable novels devoured. And most of it in good weather, which was an added bonus. Taking a holiday is always a gamble in terms of weather, but taking a holiday at the end of the summer period adds a little extra to that excitement. However, there were a few showers, but on the whole, it was sunny.
And now I am back in at my desk – and it’s still sunny.
Which leaves me with a dilemma. My desk is in a particular place in my study – determined by where various socketty and technical thingies are. It can’t go anywhere else. Well, it can, but then I can’t switch anything on…. But it does mean that it is underneath the window. Well, at an angle to it. So that, for a significant period each morning, the sun shines through the window directly onto the computer screen.
So I face a dilemma. I could walk away from the computer – which seems the most attractive option, but is possibly not always practical. Or, I can lower the blind.
I usually lower the blind. Which does mean I can read the screen. But it also means that I miss out on the sunshine.
There is a deep thought in there somewhere, about managing my context. But I’m not sure I can unearth it at the moment. Instead, I am going to lift the blind up, since the sun has gone behind a cloud – and get on with trying to make sense of what is piled up on my desk.
