Stupidity

OK I have been using a computer a long time. I know the rules about not opening links you don't know about even if they do seem to come from a friend. I guess over the years I have become complacent. I have never knowing downloaded a virus onto any computer I have owned - till now. Or rather last week. In my own defence I was tired and not really concentrating on what I was doing, but it was annoying and has kept me off the computer for a few days. Thanks to "adopted son" Pete, my computer and I are up and running again. But I will be doubly careful now what links I open. Facebook can be fun, and its unfair to blame if for my own stupidity, but I will be very wary opening any links on there in future, even if they do seem to come from a friend.

So if I am in the mood for confessing my stupidity, I will admit I have also agreed to something else that I may live to regret. First let me say, I love my home comforts. I love hot and cold running water, soft beds, flushing toilets and switches that turn lights on and off. In fact I cannot imagine anything worse than spending nights under canvas in a wet field that usually holds sheep or cows. Yesterday a friend phoned up and said I was going camping with her and another friend.............ummmm, am I? Once again I am pleading exhaustion, and maybe a touch of insanity. I am not sure how it happened, but I heard myself saying, "That might be fun". Fun? what on earth was I thinking?

I think before I do anything else stupid, I will close the computer down. Go and have some tea and pick up my knitting. After all I can't get into any trouble with a pair of needles, can I?

Hi Paula:

Sorry about your 'bug' but glad your 'son' took care of it. Now, about your camping in nature..."good luck with that!" I'm a total indoor peasant. To me the outdoors is for getting to another indoor place quickly...
Seriously, maybe you'll enjoy the outing...bring your knitting, just in case... ^__^

I am still working on how to tell my friends I hate the idea. Somehow I don't think they will let me get out of it. I may just have to plan a holiday on those dates:)
