When I was in my prime, my life revolved 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.
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 has been mysteriously cyber generated and reprogrammed with ‘make sure you do it today’ demands. I fear strongly suspect gremlins, AKA family members still on the 9-5 treadmill, who are programming the terrible twins. When I politely asked Alexa to delete the list, she doesn’t understand… but she will.
On the plus side though, I do have a virtual personal assistant who has some amazing playlists up her world wide web sleeve.
