Just a quick note to let you know why I am absent. My computer has died. My commenting will be very spasmodic because I have to borrow John's laptop when he is not using it. He is busily trying to find out what is wrong with it therefore spending long periods of time on the internet.
I was due a new computer so it's not a problem to buy one. The major problem is all my data on the old one. John thinks the hard disc might have gone down. My PC is old and I still use XP - or rather did use XP. John has been going on for ages about me updating, but I was very happy with it, and not being a techie I would rather stick with what I know. However, that is about to change!! Luckily he backed up my hard disc onto a mobile hard drive only last week. This is something he does periodically but did it mainly at this point because of the stuff on the news about this huge computer virus problem that might arise. But the question is will it transfer to a new computer? We will need to see. If it won't you ladies up in Scotland will be hearing the wailing and gnashing of teeth!!!
Why do we have our whole lives on computer? Photos, all my digis, papers etc!! Well I have learned one thing - I will be storing stuff on flash drives too in future.
Hope everybody is well and getting up to date with Christmas cards and Christmas shopping.
Love and hugs Christine xx
