Job done.

Our first batch of haymaking - three fields - is cut, dried, baled and, as I write, being collected in - well before the threatened thunderstorms.  And it is looking good - always a relief.

There is more to come, but at present things are up to date.

I am feeling confident with my computer and friend S came along and showed me how to delete things in batches rather than one by one.   She is understanding - when I said that I was useless at anything new and lacking in understanding about how the computer really works, she very kindly reminded me that I was not brought up in the computer age.

But I know this for sure - it is a marvellous thing for people over retirement age to get involved with computers - to try and master new skills.  Alright, there will be frustration and you will have to keep learning new tricks, but it keeps the old grey cells active.

I never dreamed I could ever use a computer and still don't understand 'computer speak'. However, even I learned how to shop online and wrestle with posting comments, photos and blogs. Never say never!
Glad the hay is safely in. We passed a newly cut field this morning and I hope it will be gathered before the weather changes.

Relieved that hay is in.
I remember finding out for the first time that I could delete in batches. O Happy Day!

What a nice relief to be getting your hay in and stored. We are still waiting for the cut stuff to dry.

Computers are difficult to break, so keep experimenting.

I think basic computer use should be required for all over 60. It keeps you in touch with the world (good and bad but necessary), with friends and is an endless source of information and entertainment. It's also useful as something at which you can let off steam once in a while.
