In the mid nineties we bought our first computer – and it was all foreign to me. I was a trained shorthand typist and just could not get my head around using the computer.
But by 1997 I decided to go to the local polytechnic to learn the basics. It opened up a whole new world for me. Suddenly I was learning how to use a spreadsheet (Maths wasn’t my strong point), making calculations and creating charts. I also learned to use the computer to create documents, produce tables, to draw, and so many other things.
