Bah, It never rains but it pours!

Firstly thank you for the lovely feedback about my hair, I'm really happy with it and think I'll be sticking with it for the forseeable future!



However this post is about me probably not being around much for the next few weeks. I had a couple of bad strokes of luck at the weekend. Firstly I got up really early to go swimming Sunday morning, and my car just wouldn't open with the normal clicker thing, mine uses a card not a key, anyway there is a key for emergencies so I tried that and what happened the alarm went off, at 7.45am on a Sunday morning and no matter what I did I just couldn't stop it, it eventually stopped but not before I'm sure I woke the whole neighbourhood. Anyway I went back out later to see if it could be resolved, it couldn't so I had to ring the RAC (roadside assistance for our non UK people!) and it turned out my battery was buggered, yeah cos I need that like a hole in the head, so that cost me a fortune. 

Next my laptop finally died it's final death on Saturday just after I posted my last blog post, literally! I've fixed and fixed this laptop and I know that it is not worth putting any more money into it, it needs replacing. I'm in the process of loading all my stuff onto my OH's laptop but it's not a long term solution, he needs his, and also his is neither quick enough or big enough to store all I need to, so I need a new one, how I don't know! Eating on a budget, not going out for my birthday and a small loan from the bank of mum I think!

So the bottom line is blog posting - which I've only just gotten back to doing regularly! - might be sporadic until I have technology sorted. I guess the good thing is I won't waste time trawling ebay for stuff I can't afford and might do more sewing instead :o)

Might see you around but might not, sorry, oh and sorry the blog commenting won't be so regular either :o(

Isn't it alwsy the way? One thing breaks and every blasted thing follows.
Someone posted a sign on Facebook yesterday saying " a clean house is the sign of a broken computer". xxx

If it makes you feel any better I just shelled out a few hundred that I cant afford to get my car fixed last week - unexpected costs are the worst! :( Onwards and Upwards however.....keep calm and carry on! :)

thanks all, yes you're right unexpected costs suck! My OH is currently moping round the house not knowing what to do without his laptop, so I'd better give it back once I've got some more work done!

Sending you a surge of energy for things to turn around. Rains, pours, sucks, costs too much. Just the way of life, isn't it? Hope you're back at a new keyboard soon.

Aren't car alarms a pain in the ****, ours has so many rules and regulations we hardly dare get in the car at all.
Good luck!

Oh what a couple of strokes of bad luck indeed! Hope you're able to sort everything out soon without too much headache or being too strapped in the meantime. :)

Always the flippin' way! Hope it picks up soon and I look forward to seeing what you sew. Take care.xxx

You will be missed. It is a sweet little community we have here and although we don't really know each other these are moments I look forward to throughout the day.
I have a little something for you. My email is coedith@gmail if you'd be willing to send me your physical address. Although you'll need a computer to do that....and read this : )

I just went through that about 2 months ago. My computer finally bit the bullet and I had to wait to get a new one. Best of luck to you, and hope to see a post from you soon!
