Bl**dy Technology!!!

I don't know what went wrong but I have been unable to use the computer since last night. Couldn't get on Facebook or use Google or anything. It has had to be reset to factory settings and I am now wading through and putting back everything that needs to be put back. It's a bloomin' pain.

Nipped out to Derby while the computer was resetting itself and picked up some great fabric bargains....mostly offcuts and remnants from the market. Got the rest of Ruby's birthday present ready for her to take home on Wednesday ready for Thursday.
The Works was amazing today. I picked up packs of six nine inch zips for £1, self adhesive fabric letters for Ruby's birthday card for £1, 8 A5 self adhesive glitter foam sheets for £2 and a beautiful set of fabric, buttons and trims for £2. They have some wonderful craft stuff in at the moment for cardmakers and home decor crafters. I also picked up £48 worth of loom bands for £2.40. I need to make a couple of nappy cakes and the loom bands are perfect for that. What I don't use will go to Ruby as she has the tools for making the bracelets and everything.

It's absolutely filthy out today so now we are back and staying firmly put for the night. Once I have finished with the computer we are having hot dogs and watching some more Call The Midwife.
Hope you are all keeping dry.
Thanks for visiting.

  2. No Cherie....it was the computer for sure. Something went very wrong when I was instructed to update something and it all went downhill from there. All seems OK now though since I reset it-x-

  3. Blooming updates wreck everything! Why can't they just leave things as they are!!

  4. We have had much the same problem with Dad's computer today and it took a bl...y age to get the thing put right including a rather lengthy phone call to my son in law.

  5. I think perhaps I am not going to update anymore. I am perfectly happy to leave well alone.

  6. I'm banned from the works due to my bad spending habit, books and craft stuff you can never have to much

  7. Computers can be so difficult. I know it is all very useful but sometimes I think life was less stressful when the most technical thing we had in the house was the TV remote control! xx
