Trials and Tribulations.

Good Morning, it has been a long time since I updated you on what’s what. The main problem has been Live Writer mine disappeared for some unknown reason to me. I tried and tried and in the end messed up my pc completely. I had my PC engineer in yesterday and she had to take my laptop back to factory condition so I have lost an awful lot of photographs graphics etc, the good thing is that I have also lost all the junk that had collected over the past three years.  So hopefully it will be ok now.Since I got back online I discovered that Live Writer launched a new edition of their writer so maybe the old one does not work now.

Last  Friday I had  an accident at home I picked up a pot with a metal handle that had been over a naked  flame. I saw the nurse and doctor and was referred to the burns unit in Dundee.  They took the to roof of the biggest blister and then removed my very tight wedding ring with the aid of gut wound round my finger and a lot of force and pain. My knuckles were skinned in the process but all is well now.

We are off for a short break up to Grantown on Spey next week so I will have to take a lot of pictures.  I do have some of my older ones on a memory stick so all is not lost but don’t want to put them all back on my nice clean computer.

We have also had the decorator on doing our bedroom so that is looking nice now lounge is next when we get back.

That’s about all for now am supposed to have wifi where we are going so maybe will write to you then. Till next time take care.

OUCH! Just reading about your burn made me hurt. Burns are so painful. I hope you continue to heal well.

I've never had a problem with live writer and hope I never do. I wonder what could have happend?

Have a good weekend and take it easy with your hand.

Second attempt! I'm sorry to hear of your accident Joan, I know from personal experience how bad burns can be. I hope it clears up soon. Sorry also to hear of your computer problems, I lost lots of stuff when my hard drive crashed last year, I now have an external hard drive to back up everything. Have a lovely holiday Joan and Stuart, I'm looking forward to seeing the photos! Now let's hope Blogger will let me post this! Jeannette xx


The burn sounds dreadful. I'm glad it is healing. When will you be able to get your wedding ring back on? Also sad to hear of all your computer woes. Missed you. Glad to see you're back. Looking forward to the photos. Have a wonderful holiday.
