Immediately after I published my last blog post our computer crashed in a spectacular fashion! It didn't just crash it CRASHED! Nothing could be done to save it. Luckily 95% of the stuff saved was on an external driver so not all was lost, but this saved stuff cannot run without programmes, but I did loose all my email addresses, so if you read this and we email sometimes please could you email me. Anyway, here all day and no computer, I don't mind if I am not in the house, or I stay with my dad I don't hanker after the computer but I do when I am here and whats more I prefer this computer it is large takes up a lot of room with the scanner and the printer which I use quite a lot, and Adobe programme and its - wells its cuddly and a real old friend. Alex went out and bought a laptop, new to us but a secondhand laptop which has the google "vista" on it. The programmes I use do not run on vista, so we gritted our teeth and ran the clean-up disc and then everything was GONE! Programmes had to be reloaded, so discs had to hunted out from the place they were stored because we didn't think we needed them, it took a week to reload everything, well the reloading didn't take a week it was "outlook express" I like outlook express, it is easy to use and very easy to attach attachments, what we didn't realise was that if the laptop was up and running, it pinched all my emails and nothing came through on this computer, I was getting more and more annoyed until Alex said close down the laptop and wait and watch, and low and behold my emails came though on this computer, so now I am one happy person I have my old friend back! The computer needed a good clear out anyway just one of those things we never got around too, it still had games on from when our boys were here!
These roses have nothing to do with the computer crashing, the were in the garden,and have been trying to flower since the beginning of October, but it is now the middle of November, so I thought it was about time they were plucked and bought indoors, anyway I cannot see them from my windows.
Looking at them in this photo they look half dead but assure you they came out in the warmth of the house.
I made these felt flowers
and these woolly ones too. I will be putting them in my shop soon when my friend Jane has seen them as she wanted to purchase a couple of bunches for Christmas presents
