An old recording from last summer

Rooting around in my bedside drawer, I come across my voice recorder and wonder whether a) it works b) what is on it? c) can I get it set up with my computer or will it send me into a spiral of rage and incompetence?

I get thus far and now have to try and put it on my blog page. For those of you who are a whizz at the computer, you’d beter go and do something else for a while lest it send you into an apopletíc fit. In between seeing to the animals and trying to stay awake, I manage to work it out and, of course, it costs more money. But then I think that might be a good thing. The peripheral neuropathy is getting progressively worse and sometimes I find it incredibly hard to type which, for someone who could type quite fast without looking, is obviously frustrating. My handwriting looks like someone else’s entirely, all scrawly and horrible so that’s not going to help.

Now, bear in mind this is my very first recording and, as we’re at the Dragon Boat Festival in Boston, it’s quite noisy for the first few minutes. But bear with it. Hopefully you will hear my husky tones giving you a little update of our day. The content also brought me up short as I speak about 2 friends, one of whom  is no longer with us and the other, well, let’s just say she’s had Hobson’s Choice and Mr Mason and I think and speak about her very often. The recording is so bad you probably won’t be able to hear who I’m talking about but I promise the quality of recording will get better.

I hope this works for you! It works for me in preview, even though the quality is very poor. Any feedback will be welcome.
