The Poorly Computer...

Yes, my computer is sick and early next week it will be getting an big upgrade and my long minutes of waiting for image heavy pages to load will be over, no more waiting and waiting for the little hour glass to do something...

I like to read as many blogs as possible over the weekend, but I'm a bit limited at the moment, as not only am I in the middle of reorganising at home, among other things, the postcards are now in a pretty, larger box with plenty of room for new additions- but the washing machine is on the blink threatening to stop working completely- it's had a hard life with my family.

Last Saturday I came back from food shopping to find my OH had dragged the washing machine out of it's slot and was checking the pipes at the back, with a pile of wet washing in a laundry basket.
I'm glad to say he got it working again, but it keeps having stroppy spells- now that has given me an idea...

But anyway next week I will be discovering Windows7- and I hope by next Friday I'll be back surfing the web without any problem and catching up on the blogs I've been missing.

Technology and labour saving devices are great until they breaks down or get old...

Finally here is the writing related bit, I'm going to leave you with a blog to look at- Louise Wise-who has started a blog directory (by category) that you might like to peruse in the meantime.


  1. All the best with the new technology, Carol! It's a necessary evil sometimes, isn't it?

  2. Thanks Rosemary. In today's world we can't do without a lot of the technology used.
    But we can still write stories with a pad of paper and a pencil, or a pen...

  3. I've just had to change a computer from XP to 7 and all I can say is, I wish they would just leave well alone and not keep "improving" things. The email prog (Windows Live Mail) is horrendous. I had a good moan about it on my blog so I won't get started on it again.

    I wish you luck!

  4. That's the problem with new things Gail, some computer boffin thinks they can do something better next time and forget the words 'if it ain't broke don't mend it'.

  5. Hope all's ship-shape very soon for you. I know it's difficult to write in the middle of a major sort-out. Good luck! : )
