Make that Move!

motion light

My uncle has motion detector light bulbs installed at his residence and the lights come on when there is movement around them. It is almost magical; as I park my car and step out, the security light just by the front door comes on and goes off soon after I make my way in, and provided there is power, the lights respond to me as I move through the house. However, I realized that if I stayed in one place without movement, even though the light had responded to my previous movement, it would go off. So I could be right underneath the motion sensitive light bulb but I would be in darkness because I stopped moving. Mid staircase, there is another of such bulbs, it doesn’t come on until I take one step onto the staircase, then and only then does the indicator pick my body warmth. Sometimes, it is dark at the bottom of the staircase so I am unable to see the entire staircase until I take a step onto the first step and move into the darkness. I can then see the light for the rest of the journey because the lights come on.

Hello everyone,

This happened yesterday and I thought to share.

Mondays are typically my busiest week day at work. You know the drill, arrive at work, draw up To-Do List, start working through, ticking check check as you go. Yesterday was a desk day, meaning that I had no meetings, just me and my lonely ‘lappie’ and the long to do-list. So i worked meticulously through the list and about mid-day, I realised my laptop was flashing a low battery warning.  Not a big deal, all I needed to do was connect my charger right?  Guess what? I actually ensured that I connected the charger to my power socket and continued working. I felt like I had dealt the distraction and was ready to continue with my work.

Not too long afterwards though, I got another more desperate warning from my laptop...
