The Great Laptop Farm in the Sky

That may be where my little Packard Bell is headed. It had a bit of an accident yesterday and won't switch itself on. My claim's been put in and it's due to be picked up and looked at by the professionals any day now. In the meantime, I'm appropriating The Bloke's laptop to access my emails and work off CD-ROMs. Mercifully I do have all my stuff backed up and can still access all my emails (dating back to January, thanks to Google Mail), but I may get a bit behind on emailing people simply because I'm working directly from the web and not from all my little Outlook Express folders. So if you've contacted me lately, I apologize if there's a bit of a delay before I get back to you.

In other news, I've been working more on my plans for Wisteria Cottage and have a better idea of my hero and heroine and their stories. I'm also getting my gift box ready to go for Brenda Novak's Diabetes Auction. Keep checking back here for a picture of my donation and a description of the gift-box contents!

Oh nooo! Thank goodness you're organised and have everything backed up. You sound so calm... *note to self next time I have a laptop crisis - I want to be like Jess*

Just hearing/seeing the title Wisteria Cottage has me sighing "aah".

I've not heard about the auction. I'm off to check it out...

Sorry to hear about your laptop - hope it gets sorted soon (don't you just hate techno glitches).

Can't wait for more on Wisteria Cottage (can I let it some weekend please?)

Hope you and Flumpydumpling are okay. jx

Sue -- LOL, I was only calm this time because I learned the hard way once before that you MUST BACK UP REGULARLY! I cannot emphasize the importance enough! Brenda's auction is great and there are such wonderful things to win; I got some fabulous signed books and goodies last year.

Lis -- They scare me too! When I tried to switch the laptop on and it turned itself off again, then wouldn't even do THAT, I was not happy...

Judy -- Luckily I had coverage under our home and contents insurance. I should hear next week whether it's going to get repaired or replaced. Me and Flump are fine, thanks, except he/she is being a right little bu**er today!
