A relaxing steak dinner with flatmate and friends was what I needed after a week batting with the printer. I wasted 4 to 5 hours trying to get the thing to work. A mandatory paper-less office might be the answer to my problems.
The highlight of the week was a bizarre coincidence. I lost my phone last Sunday. I went to buy a new one on Monday. I was a few minutes away from making a decision when my friend turned up and told me not to buy it. It turned out that I had dropped it in his shoe in the hallway when I was at his home.
At my church group we debated whether this was divine intervention or dumb luck. In any case I was grateful that I didn't have to spend any money. The British economy would have to wait before I use my spending power to boast economic demand.
