Missing The Hussy already

My laptop gets called “The Hussy” because I spend more time with it than with anything else. Having sent it on a six-day holiday this morning, I miss being able to:
  • sit near whatever der kinder are doing, supervise them and still work
  • sit in a truly comfortable chair and work
  • lie in bed not whimpering and work
  • sit outside in the sun (such of it as there is at the moment) and work
  • drop in on customer sites and have a full working context immediately
  • get work done when I would otherwise be twiddling my thumbs
I don’t know how to assign a monetary value to most of these, but it must have paid for itself several times over already.
