I could keep trying to update my blog with posts from the past, but in doing so I’m losing the present! Daylight savings has really blown any time I have to myself out of the water.
My tolerance of working at home expired last week with endless interruptions from the Smalls. It is unrealistic to expect M to remain away from the house with them all day each week. And it is impossible to keep them out of the room once they know I am there.
So yesterday I took the caravan to the carpark of the Point Leo caravan park. It was perfect.
I don’t have power in my caravan, but my macbook battery usually gives me a good five or six hours. Well…until I plug in my dictation headphones *pouts* Thus, I had to run the car for half an hour to charge my laptop. Slightly ridiculous, but if I’d driven for that long, I would have used more fuel as I’d be towing the extra weight. Needed: one deep cycle battery!!
The day was warm. By about 2pm I was down to a singlet and shorts. I got a good seabreeze through the doors and window, but was very thankful for my little solar extractor fan. It seems to really take the edge off.
When my macbook battery carked it again, I’d pretty much finished all I had to do…so I went for a swim. A SWIM! I was one of two people on the beach, and the only one stupid enough to submerge themselves in ICY COLD WATER. Cold in a good way… Bracing!
Right now I’m on the train going into the office. I am feeling sore and pins and needly in my right arm from too much typing and trackpad use (the mouse drained my battery so I unplugged it as am idiot) yesterday. Today, I will try and dictate the majority of my work.
What was good about yesterday was NO INTERNET…well…just enough internet for me to check my email on my iPhone and post a few Instagram pics and Facebook updates. But not enough internet for me to ditz away my time reading blogs etc. If I can come up with a battery, I’ll be caravanning for work more often…
