Computer blues...

As much as I enjoy my computer I loathe the difficulties/frustrations they cause... For the last three weeks we have had a continual 'time of it' with my daughter E's comp. It was bought new not quite 12 months ago and has had three trips back to the shop... Then last week the monitor gave up the ghost and it too has gone back... But inbetween all these comings and goings the cable/broadband started to play up as well dropping out for hours at a time... Grrrrrr.... Yesterday that was attended to by a lovely guy who patiently explained the problem to us... I nodded sagely - it looked like I understood what he was saying.... But after inspecting the source from outside the house the problem was solved... Now we wait on the moniter's arrival... Meanwhile we have my moniter on E's comp - and I have access to her broadband... I have never read so many blogs in such a short time... I feel like I am behind the wheel of a natty little sportscar zipping along the information highway... But I do love my old comp - it may chug along and hiccup occassionally but it just keeps going... Hopefully next week I shall be back on board in my room on my comp...
Yesterday I had a visit from G of Patra's Place... We spent an enjoyable time of it stitching and chatting and eating... P enjoyed the brownies G!!!! G perhaps next year you and I might take a stitching week-end away... Let's start planning it now...
I am struggling to finish M's mermaid... Her birthday is in a couple of weeks and I still have a good day's work on it... I think because it has been around for the best part of a year that I am sick of it but I can see the sense in finishing it and getting it out of the way... I really loved it when I first started it but have really lost interest in it...Hmmm...
Well I am writing this before I go off to work so I had better get a wriggle on and get into work mode... For those of you who read this I hope your day/night is an enjoyable one...

I think it's a great idea for you and G to head off for a stitchers weekend retreat - with different health issues being tackled at home it will do you both good :) I will take you up on your offer of a phone call shortly - I'm a bit in anti-social mood at the moment, still shaking off my headache ... as soon as I perk up a bit more, I'll give you a bell and we can arrange a get-together :) Sorry to hear about your 'puter bugs - it's a right royal pain ... been there, done that!

Our day cheered me up no end, Sharon. I was VERY tempted to call you again this morning after some early morning frustrations, but the day did improve somewhat. Yeah, that stitching weekend sounds great - where would you like to go - Inverloch or Cowes? I have contacts for a holiday house in both places!
