What a Day!!!

I had a bit of a problem with my laptop logging off last night.
Suddenly it started to update stuff, even though that feature is turned off.
This morning when I tried to log in, I couldn’t as it wouldn’t accept my password.
Hubby had a go and it didn’t work for him either, so I automatically thought I’d done something wrong and imported some gremlins which had taken up residence in my hard drive.

Hubby said it was nothing to do with me, and has had to reset my computer.
It’s taken all day as although it cancelled out the error in misreading my password, it removed a lot of the software we use, like our wireless printer download (ggrrrr!!), the camera software, our preferred anti-virus programme, my games (!!), and Open Office which we use instead of Mr Gates rip off software.

So in between walking the dog, getting our meals, doing the laundry, and Hubby sorting out my computer, I’ve been writing my Christmas cards.
I made quite a few a little while ago, so armed with my newsletters and this year’s poem insert for family, I set to work with sticky tape, a scalpel blade and a pen.

My poem was too long/fat to fit some of my cards so I’ve folded it up and put it in anyway.
I have 29 to post so it’s going to cost me a bit, but I don’t mind. It’s only once a year afterall and my way of keeping in touch with everyone. We have a few more distant friends now having left the area, so they are all included.

As it turned out I was four short, so made those and now I’m all set. I still have the ready-mades  (bought for the box for my niece’s wedding card) for emergencies, but I’ve gone through my address book and I’ve got everyone in it.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I must say I rely on computers but know nothing about them so if anything like that happened to me I would be in a tailspin !!
