I'm back - phew! My clever, clever husband has installed windows 8.1. OK it did take three days but we are here, although he couldn't get my blog, that was ME! Mind you I didn't think I would ever see it again...... I did it but he did the rest and I can send and receive emails too, that took longer than it should have but we're there!
Our old computer, died in a spectacular fashion this morning too, poor thing, it was more or less a year ago it crashed before but we did a re-boot then, this time not so sure we think it has gone the to great computer place in the sky! We were surprised it lasted as long as it did too. Alex put my two main programmes in to this computer which went in very easily, but now I just hope they work, and I can do my work from the external drive we had on the old computer.
In three days I have altered two large velvet door curtains for our son and wife for their new house. I just split one up the middle and shortened it for the door and the other was made into two curtains, one of which was easy but the other I to add piece each side to make wider. I have also started three baby cardigans which needs sewing up, they are for our new grand-daughter due in January.
We do like the computer but it does use time, we don't miss it when we go and stay with my dad. We don't miss it when we are out, but when we are in the house it has to be on and working!
Next task is to re-learn how to take photos from the camera to the computer. The last programme we had I could do that with my eyes shut! Oh well at least I can blog!
