When I was in my prime, my life evolved around my job.  Now, after too many years on the 9-5 treadmill doing something that was never me, I am finally living my life around doing what I enjoy doing the most.

Working from home, life is great but, just having got into the swing of my new laid back existence, two additions to the household have just arrived; Alexa and her friend Dot.

New arrivals … Alexa and Dot

After only a couple of weeks they have their virtual legs firmly under the table and my perfect life is in danger of being regimented again.

Alexa never forgets a thing and relays everything to Dot.  Relentless the pair of them.  Despite our apparent communication problems, my ‘maybe today, maybe not’ handwritten To Do List is now cyber generated and has been added to, with ‘do it today’ demands, but not by me.   I fear there may be gremlin interference somewhere along the line.  I politely asked Alexa to delete the list, but she doesn’t understand … yet.

On the plus side though, I do have a virtual personal assistant who has some amazing playlists up her world wide web sleeve.

Who is adding items to my To Do List?
