The last thing I want is to be glued to a computer all day. So I have developed a routine to avoid the temptation and serious bad health effects of being stuck on my beautiful Macbook Pro all day. So here’s my new routine.

Breakfast. Coffee, toast and check the Google news, emails and overnight Tweets and Facebook entries. Followed by second coffee, and answer emails. Once finished, exercise time and check the snail mail. (Panic at the sight of bills and consider more coffee.)

Time to make sure I have written my blog post for the day. Normally 20 minutes writing and 40 minutes playing with my Macbook. Then I remember the bills that arrived in the mail and feel guilty so I log on to my bank site and start figuring out how I’ll pay the bills. Two hours later, I give up on a few bills and file them back in an easily forgotten drawer, and consider lunch.

Lunch is a great time to catch up on the Google news again, and see if any new Apple products have been released by Steve Jobs, oh, and check if anybody loves me on Twitter. Then an after lunch coffee, and of course some tweets to answer.

Then. Yes, then it’s time to get on with my new novel that I have ignored all morning. So, tap, tap, clack, clack and lose track of time until my wife arrives home at six thirty and scares the living daylights out of me. A reflex action then to find a recipe for dinner. Oh, epicurious.com you’re a life saver. Then we have a glass of wine and cook together to the dim glow of the recipe on my trusty Macbook.

Dinner finished, time to do a check on my Twitter friends, and for my wife to read the 175
blogs she follows. At last, finally and without remorse, we are both finished for the day. Time to say hello, and go to bed.

    I laughed out loud at this: So, tap, tap, clack, clack and lose track of time until my wife arrives home at six thirty and scares the living daylights out of me.

    Have a refreshing evening!

    What did we do before the internet then? I think I remember something called the radio! That's right. Talk back radio.
