Lockdown Learning

I am feeling chuffed because I completed a computer course yesterday that I started at the beginning of the lockdown here in Ireland in March.

My computing days began when computers were as big as juggernauts and I am pretty much  self-taught so I decided to have a go at getting the basics sorted and certified after all this time.

I’ve loved it and plan to push on now.

I have a thing about learning something new when the situation changes so learning Spanish came when I broke my leg and knitting when I broke it a second time.

I think all this comes back to the fact that we were reared with the philosophy that boredom isn’t an acceptable or necessary state and that one can never run out of new things to learn.

I’m still toying with getting to grips with playing the banjo, getting to know the sky and conquering those crosswords that seem impossible to figure out even when you have the solution in front of you.
