WEEKEND EVENTS


I am very pleased with my new look pink keyboard, it does take a bit of getting used to though as the keys feel different.  I will persevere for a bit of pink lol.

I have one very happy boy here as the shop have fixed his iPad so I won’t get any sense out of him today.  All the rest of the family have gone to V festival and are having the best time so that’s good.

Tonight it is going to be movie and munch, I think we are having just as much fun as the rest of them at V.  I wonder if I will see them in the highlights show later, I was surprised it’s not being shown live anywhere.

BUSY MONDAY

20130408-115925 PM.jpg

Another lovely day in Kent, amazing how it makes you feel so much better. I have been busy today as sorted some plants in the pots so all strawberry plants are out, carrots have been planted and kale…not sure what that will be like as never tried growing that before. I need to get some potatoes, beetroot and onions in at the weekend and do all the flower pots in front of the windows. I have been collecting pictures, ornaments, lights and candle holders so it should look lovely by Sunday night….that’s the plan. My aim is to create a sitting area that will look nice all year round, I really do not like it looking so bare in the winter.

This evening I have been struggling with the new laptop and Windows 8, I attempted to load the printer as it is HP the same as laptop but no, they are not compatible so it now looks like I am going to have to buy a new printer! Will this never end, I have never known so many problems after buying a new laptop I wish I had just bought a cheap one now like I did before as I never had any trouble with it….apart from going wrong lol

I did manage to load all my pictures from the spare hard drive and took a lot of my camera so at least that went ok and I have them all, it was lovely looking back at when the children were little. Photos bring back so many memories, I ended up looking at loads of them and that is why I am so late writing this post, I nearly forgot about you all.

I am still struggling with the ITunes, I will have another go tomorrow at that as think I will have to google it to see what I am doing wrong. My wifi appears to be very slow tonight for some reason, if that goes wrong they may have to carry me out in a white coat as I will go mad lol

I was very surprised about the social media sites as MSN, FaceBook, Skype all appear to be linked together. Not sure about Twitter as have not got to grips with that yet, so many things to re-learn not easy for an old brain that’s very temperamental!

I also have a digital photo frame that I need to set up but have been putting it off as it all looks a bit complicated, if I can master this Windows 8 then anything is possible. Lol

Off to bed to read the book, night x

GOOD FRIDAY

Where did the day go, all I can say is that windows 8 is very different but not hard to get to know. It has taken me most of the day but I have put all my stuff on it and changed all the colours and now it feels like mine.

One of my granddaughters face timed me this afternoon ( she does quiet often ) to tell me that they had been out and she had got six pots of taster paints to paint her Barbie house and some tiles for one of the room’s. My son in law has built another level on it for her as she needed another bedroom, the house is bigger than her! We have a very happy girl though and the Barbie’s think it is great. I was also told that there is a Barbie who is a writer and that has been put on her birthday list.

I had fish for dinner, got to keep the tradition going, afraid it was not fresh though. Hopefully it has renewed a few brain cells, well, they say it makes you brainy.

Hope you all had a Good Friday.

HAPPY

Just little thing’s can make you happy, can be a smile from a friend or a kind word for it to lift you up for the whole day. For another person it might not mean anything at all to them, we cannot know what make’s the other person happy but always giving a wave, smile or word to others might make their day for them. A comment on here or FaceBook or Twitter can make me smile as I then know that what they have read they have enjoyed and that is what keeps me going. I guess we all have self doubt, some more than others, so a nice comment makes it all worthwhile, for me anyway.

The new laptop was bought today, not the one I saw on-line but a faster better one so all I have to do now is set it all up, I have allowed all tomorrow for that job, and playing with it. I have not used windows 8 yet so I am looking forward to it.

I really like the colour too, something a bit different. I wonder if it will help me to write quicker, I seem to have so many ideas in my head for stories that I do not know what to write first. Should I finish the couple of short stories or enter a couple of competitions or get on with my novel? I am at least writing so all is good. Tonight I will be going to bed with a book as in our Sainsbury’s supermarket they are doing a good selection of books at 2 for £3.00

The following picture I saw on my daughter’s wall this afternoon, I thought it looked lovely and what a lovely keepsake, it could be covered by a piece of Perspex to keep it looking good. The two girls aged ten and one had good fun in the paint and both liked different thing’s about the experience, the elder one liked doing the prints while the younger one loved the feeling of the paint on her hands and feet and then looking back on her prints. I’m sure she was probably thinking how did that get there, it’s on my feet lol.

Tomorrow is Good Friday, when I was a child I would go with my grandparents to the fish man as we always had fresh fish for dinner. I think all the children of today will remember about Easter are the chocolate eggs. What do you remember about Good Friday?

Have a happy day. x

NEW

Tomorrow I pick up the new lap top, I am containing my excitement until I have got it home and put all my own bits on it, then I can enjoy it.

I am still working on problem with iPhone and iPad but I am beginning to think it is to do with the latest isos 6.1.3 that was the last update. I really do not think it is me this time.

I am of to the O2 on Saturday as my daughter and granddaughter are going to see Oley Murs, we are going for a meal first so it will all make a nice change.

Easter is so early it just does not feel right, or is that just because of the weather? I could not believe it tonight when the weather man said that April is not going to be a lot better. So long as there is sunshine for the following five months, I will be happy! Lol. I know wishful thinking, we can all dream. At least I know I am going away September so will get sunshine then.

My writing has come to a complete standstill with all these problems but I have been doing a lot of research about different thing’s for my book, so it is not all bad.

The garden is looking bare, I think I will do seeds and get young plants and start them of indoors and then greenhouse and just hope for the best. Fruit and veg is going to all be at least a month late this year, if they grow that is.

Hope you are all keeping warm, I spent a good two hours today reading post’s and following some new people. There are so many great blogs out there, just not enough hours in the day to read them all, such a shame, but I am trying. ☺

IS IT BED TIME YET?

As you can see from the heading I really want today to be over, for a variety of reasons. You know when you wake up and you just do not feel right, one minute hot so I take my jumper off and then I am cold. Also have the headache that you just know is going to be there all day, no matter what you do or take for it. I had to go shopping as got visitors at the weekend, I must of traveled miles walking round and round the supermarket as my brain would not engage at all. You guessed it, I picked the checkout with the trainee assistant on it, it must of been her first day!

I eventually get home and think about dinner as my daughter comes round for dinner on Thursdays, it will be a very simple dinner today. I sit down with a cup of tea and put my laptop on as I like to try and read a few blogs and maybe do a bit more towards the web site. That’s funny, I thought I turned the laptop on…..I did, there is no life in it apart from the on light. I turn it off and leave it for a while, then try again but no there is nothing. I have most things backed up on another drive, apart from the latest book I am writing so I am a little bit stressed as most people would be.

You would think that it could not get any worse, you do not know me. My friends constantly tell me that I am the most unlucky person they have ever known. I then get a phone call from my electric supplier, which I do think is a bit odd as it is after work hours. They ask me if I have had a letter increasing my payments, I say no. I tell them I will send them a meter reading in the morning. After the call I go on line and have a look at my account, it is normally about £60 a quarter. They have estimated my bill at £386.20

That is more than what it is a year, how do they work that out? They will get my email in the morning.

I am now going to bed, enough is enough.
