Risks of Multitasking

This morning I was home, happily writing in my blue jeans and sweatshirt. Before I headed up to my study, I threw in a load of laundry and started the dishwasher. I took my tray with my tea up, turned on the space heater and settled down to work. I printed out two papers I wanted to read, the printer clicked, whirred and everything stopped. Who knew - but all these things are on the same circuit: dishwasher, study, washing machine.

Moral of the story? If you multi-task, you can blow a fuse.
